hey thanks for the reply..
last nbme i did is form 13..
n i felt it was easy..but ended up with same score..
i believe I'm overanalyzing questions..
n in the left over time i went back n changed some of the answers..which ended up wrong.. there is no particular area of weakness..
currently I'm doing usmlerx ( finished u world)..
both cumulative scores 80%..
can u suggest on how to improve in these last 3 weeks

Hey,

so looks like you're just second guessing yourself. Just go with your gut feeling and chose the answer that comes to mind first and stick to that choice. I think NBMEs try to confuse you when they can and make you doubt your first decision. I've made the same mistake at times.

Sounds like your uworld cumulative is really high as is your usmlerx so that's good.

I think just multiple repetitions of First Aid should raise your score. USMLE Rx definitely helps with that. Every single word in FA is testable, so make sure to know it cold. If you do about 50 pages a day, you should finish in about 10 days (approx). Also, make sure to write another nbme to see where you stand (without changing answers).

I'm pretty sure your NBME score will be much higher next time. You definitely have the potential with high qbank scores. Just keep reading and reading FA, that repetition should work out for you. No point adding any more resources as your exam is very close.

Hope that helps. good luck!
