Every form you buy is valid for 30 days (so better buy them separately). Once you start a test, you must complete it in 20 days. Once you complete a test you can see its results ad infinitum (I think so at least, I can still see results of an NBME I gave 3 months ago).

Extended forms show you only the questions you got wrong. You cannot see any question you got right.
You can see only your picked answer and an 'X' below the question.
There are no explanations provided in the NBME form, nor is the right answer marked, although you can do your own research and come up with the right answer.
I recommend extended form - one's mistakes always provide valuable input.

UWSA should be used more as a learning tool, than as an assessment one.

Do them if you want an extra 368 UWorld quality questions...but don't expect to get an accurate score prediction. If you don't have that much time or money, do UWSA 1 as it is harder (I had almost double the mistakes on UWSA 1 compared to UWSA 2!).

Concerning NBMEs, given that you gonna sit the exam in less than a month, I would suggest a maximum of 3 NBMEs. The NBMEs take up valuable time that should be used in other more learning-oriented resources, like Qbanks and FA. Ideally, do one now, and another two in the mid of the month, back-to-back, to simulate the real deal and learn to deal with mental fatigue. I would suggest any of the 11-15 NBMEs. I've done 6 too, but it seemed easier compared to the others.

And remember, whatever the results of the assessmentents, there's a big chance you'll do better on the actual exam, with persistence and hard work.
