Default Need advice how accurate is NBME 16

Hi, I wanted to know whether you guys think I should take the USMLE or just cancel it. I took NBME 13/15 about 3 weeks ago and scored a 222. I recently took NBME 16 and scored a 239. I finished uworld twice and finished kaplan once. I went through first aid a couple times now. I don't know whether NBME 16 over predicts or I just got lucky. For people who took NBME 16 was it accurate to your real score. thanks

Oh I am sorry I forgot to add I am a DO student and took the COMLEX. People have told me I have to do a little higher than average or else it will hurt me. I wasn't sure whether I should take the exam at this point.

when you say you did kaplan once, are you talking about the kaplan qbank or kaplan lecture notes?
