Different report with 7, 11 and 15 as to which is more close to real score but I would take 11 last. Some say 7 is predictive but probably it's loosing its predictive value becos of current trend in questions. If u have to do three I would say 15 then , 7 then 11.
Bootom line is it doesn't matter which one is done first but do them when u are really prepared depending on ur qbank scores.

take NBME 12 now. and start working hard on parts you are worst at first.

use UWorld to compensate for more questions on topics and sections NBME tells you need work.

Yes, I said now. That what I did, I promise it will work.

In my own opinion I think nbme shd be done when u have made good use of the available sources of info including qbanks. But at the same time u want to clear ur conscience and know where exactly u stand so if that is the case then do nbme midway thru qbanks becos I see nbme not as learning too but for assessment so why do u assess ur self when u are not prepared enough. Infact the qbanks also give u performance scale and so u would know ur weak areas.
Good luck
