Listening Repeating Silly Mistakes

I did NBME 11 on 25 April I got 490, then I was very tensed as I was stuck at 440 2 months back ..ie NBME 5 and 6 with one month gap same score.


I retook NBME 12 may 3, here also I got 490, I did very silly 10 mistake if I don't do those mistakes i would be at 540 which i feel is due to non revision of first aid , so what do you say mostly will I repeat the same in main exam also , or I should wait. i want only 99. I did not book my date

I am feeling like revise FA and give exam on may 13

My Kaplan Qbank score 67 percent 83 percent complete

Default Don't worry

The more you practice the less likely you'll repeat those silly mistakes.

Try to focus on each question as if it's the only question in your life.

Do not hurry up.

Look for clues, be careful in interpreting the exact wording of each question.

NB) I did not see any student who came out of the exam without crying about silly mistakes so you will be fine, don't worry.

Did you feel like you could have answered those 10 questions if you had revised that content from FA?

Depending on that, if you revise FA like it is going to die tommorow and beat it up and memorize the ish out of it then you are set... Just do crazy work in the next 10 days.. Thats what Im planning on doing FA 2 times this month and 2 more or more next month.

I was suggesting based on the fact that your concepts are already done, from Kaplan, goljan etc. FA is meant to consolidate knowledge, and it helps to have concepts at your finger tips. Well, if you haven't done Kaplan/UW yet then def review atleast UW.. Goodluck
