Arrow NBME Feeling

Has this ever happened to anyone.... You do an NBME and you feel quite confident during it, you recognize 70+ percent of the questions and know where the question stem might be going. But then get your NBME result and your jaw drops. [Poor Score]

I did NBME 7, and i felt so good about it, then later to finish it and found out i did really bad. I am so mad. I felt good about the questions but obviously something is not working somewhere. Uggh back to the books, no more NBMEs for now. I need to find a way to improve this NBMEs or improve this false sense of hope it gives during the blocks.

Planning on just doing USMLErx and FA. i have done Uworld twice and i recognize the questions every time. So need another q bank. Hopefully USMLErx works and i can someday be one of those stories of failing to passing.

Stay motivated folks. To everyone struggling with this exam, you are not alone. It is so easy to give up. But giving up will leave you in regrets on the long run. Keep going guys, we need to uplift ourselves.

This exact same thing happened to me last month when I did NBME. I really hope we all can improve this month.
