Its sad to hear that!! But dont get your hopes down....Just think what you could of did wrong and start studying again. try maybe different approach from your previouse preparation.

sorry to hear that , that too with an NBME score of 500 or so, you should definetly be in the pass range. How was test day for you?

even i thought NBME had been good for me but otherwise test day i did find 3-4 questions per block outta nowhere for me .& after the exam i realised that maybe 4-5 should have been answered differently .
but being left out by a single mark makes it the more annoying !
m also now thinking maybe the behavioral science part got me dodged ; MAYBE
now i have to reconstruct a new study plan
