Default Disappointed low step 1- please help

Guys I got my result and I am so shocked

My scores were
nbme 7- 207
Nbme 11- 209
Nbme 13- 217
Uwsa1- 240

I was very confident. And I has improved my nbme scores. I took all the self assessments with one week gap

And now my score came out as 193

I passed just by two marks.
Should I send it for rechecking? I'm so confused. I'm really thinking about quiting.

Default Keep your head up

Don't let it get you down, the key is to keep moving forward, and stay positive. You have no idea what great things can come your way. Don't give up!

Best of luck on the rest of your exams, and career.

BE HAPPY YOU PASSED!!
not a great score but its NOT IMPOSSIBLE
Barone told us in the live lectures i went that its all about connections when you dont have the best scores (he mentioned a guy that had 217 and wanted ophtalmology so bad, he didnt quit, he made connections and he got in), so try by that path letting everyone see how great doctor you are and how passionate you are, also try your best on the next tests and youll see you will match!!

Thank you guys for the kind words.
I guess I'm still in shock. I was atleast expecting somewhere in the ballpark of 200-220.
This is very low .
But yes I'll try my best for the other exams.
I guess I had a bad luck.

I still can't believe my score. It's nowhere near my nbmes.
Can somebody tell me if I should send it for recheck ?
Any experiences with recheck

hey there really sorry to hear that.
from what ppl told me it doesn't make a difference when you send for a revaluation.i think even in the website somewhere it is mentioned that a change in score is unlikely.but if you want go for a recheck but don't put hopes up too high.
I m sorry I knw this is not wat u wanted to hear I guess....
