Listening Scored 490 in NBME Form 7

Hi guys,
Did the NBME 7 and got a 490....where does this place me? Do I stand a decent chance in the exam?
also my usmle world random blocks are averaging about 75% is this good enough?

thanks

Hi, I will be giving NBME 7 very soon and I was wondering what did you think of the this NBME compared to other NBMEs or USMLE World? Was this one harder/easier, were questions longer in length, were there more hints given in questions, etc???? I just wanted to see how it compares to other NBMEs and Uworld! THanks!

hi, i havent done any of the other NMBEs so i cant say but compared to u world the qs i thought were harder and longer with mutiple levels of thought needed. some were really wierd as u will see. i mean my average on uworld after having done all my studying and going through the bank once is now at 75-80% on random timed blocks, but when i took the nbme i was taken aback a bit. mind u i took the nbme and was so tired from studying the night before that i dozed off for a bit (literally five minutes lol) but still after doing so many qs that shouldnt really matter. let me know how u think it certainly out me off a bit. cheers

I scored 480 in form7 jus yesterday and i am also in a dilemma whether i am ready for step or not... all my divisions are in higher performance except 3... so i am thinking to review those subjects and avoid some silly mistakes which i had done in form 7 and thinking to take the step within 1 week... not sure whether i am in right path or not...

I took nbme 7 and learned that they have standart deviation of 100, so if you score 490, that places you anywhere in between 390 - 590, that is 196-242. People used to say number 7 was very predictive, but it is hard to believe when even nbme says that those forms are learning tools only...However, I do believe that if you know your weak spots, it is easier to concentrate on them after they are revealed to you. Good luck, guys!
