I believe form 6 & 7 still have the best correlation to the exam scores. But as i was exposed to the question of these forms so i decided to do them offline & do the form 12 online.

hey i took the NBME 11 and 12 exam before my step 1..
They both are good and have a good predictable value too.
I found them as good as NBME 6 and 7. dont think they are too different from the rest of the NBMe's.
Got 237 in NBME 11 and got 241 in NBME 12.
Final score in step 1 - 237..

hey guys..am a little confused!..NBME 12-224, nbme 6-235, nbme 7-247..does anybody out here feel 12 was way harder than 6 or 7?..am so worried the latest form is the predictor of the score n not the older ones!

For me it's the same
NBME 12 predicted 224
NBME 7 predicted 236
I think NBME 12 is the real predictor

I think they are weighted, so a high percentage may not necessarily correlate to high score depending on the weight.

so heres the update for nbme 7 vs 12.

nbme 7 - 5/28: 610/247

nbme 12 - 6/1: 560/235

felt the questions may have been similar, but the answer choices were more picky. harder to come to one definitive choice. thoughts?

Funny, I have the opposite scores...
NBME 7 (weeks ago) 235
NBME 12 (days ago) 247

I felt 12 was easier, but I had an intense 2 weeks of studying between forms which may have played into it considerably...
