Dont worry ... You must have made silly mistakes in nbme 13.... Did you take it after nbme 15... Check your incorrect questions in nbme 13 and relax

Ok this is just my thought process.. While taking nbme 13 did you feel questions were from areas that you find difficult and compared to nbme 13 did the 15 make you feel questions were easier ... If thats the case you need to work on your low performance areas in form 13 ... You can finish the uworld then revise FA... According to me one last FA revision is very important before the exam ... Which is what im doing .... But if you feel questions make you confident you can do that as well
