Lol I just posted for help too. Don't know honestly. I got a 224 on NBME 15 1 week ago. Aiming for 250 plus. I have 6 weeks at hand. So I plan to do uworld and first aid again. If you are aiming for the same and have time, I'd say do the same. Firstaid plus uworld. I HOPE to GOD it works out

No one knows. It depends on the curve of your exam. I think I got around 40 wrong but the exam is so long that number maybe totally off. I ended up with 245. Aim for fewer than 6 wrong per block if you wanna be sure of 250. Good luck.

I got exactly a 240 but I couldn't tell you how many I got wrong. When you take the test you will realize how hard it is to figure out how many you got wrong. If to you study well there are a few obvious wrong questions. The majority of your wrong will be a concept you already know but they are asking some specific question and so you aren't sure if you got it right or wrong.
