Default Difficulty/prediction power of NBME 13??

Hey everyone,

My Step 1 is in 3 weeks time. I did NBME 7 ten days ago and got a 228.
Then I worked on my weak areas and did NBME 13 and got a 242.

Is there any consensus on the ease/difficulty of any NBME form over another? Or how predictive they are? Especially 13.

Also, am I good to go with this score or should I get an extension? I want to match in psychiatry and am hoping to get in a good program.

Any replies will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

Try to do NBME 15 to see where do you stand ! Form 15 is very similar to 13 and they are said to be the most recent ! I got 2 points difference in both forms (257, 259). My exam is next Wed. :sorry:
