Default Help, step 1 dilemma

So,

I scored a 440/215 on NBME 12, 4 days ago. I just took NBME 15 and got the same exact score. My test is scheduled in 3 days... My Current UWorld average is 63% with 300 questions left. What should I do? Delaying the test is possible, but difficult with my university at the moment.

Any Suggestions? I'm not looking to destroy the test. Just get a decent score.

haii vancouver. try to cover your weak areas with uworld,FA and pathoma again. then try with another NBME online you may improve your scores atleast to a minimum extent. is 215 is enough for u 2 get residency? i mean if u have strong recommandations it will be better to go for exam.

Default NBME score correlation with rel USMLE

Hi,
I am persistently getting 200 on NBME,but 70+ on U world.The exam is in 10 days.My question is
1.how predictive are these scores to the real exam.postponing is an almost impossible option as i will be bogged down by school stuff with clinical rotations and have given my 100% best shot.Confused
2.I plan on neuro residency.what is the step 1 scores they are looking at for neuro residency?
