Question How Predictive is a NMBE 13 test score of 530?

Hi Everybody,

I was wondering about the predictiviness of a NMBE form 13 score of 530 (equivalent to 228), as well as a NMBE form 15 of 500 (equivalent to 220)

I am planning to get the first step within 2 months, since I am passing the simulated exams that I have been taken until now. However, I am still need to finish my readings on the First Aid. What would you recommend me?. Please, advise.

In my opinion, and I think others might agree with me on this, nbme 15 is the most predictive practice test. The new exam is very similar to nbme 15 in terms of content and style of questions.

yes nbme 15 is more like the recent exam...but 7 is most predictable!!
i had 242 on nbme 15 n 220 on nbme 7..
n real score was 227...
so for me nbme 7 was more closer to my real score!!
