Correct Answer Step 2 ck this month or should i extend it?

Heloo Everyone,
I finished once with kaplan lecture & videos except Pediatrics and completed MTB 2 for Internal med & MTB 3 for rest of the subjects. I just took u world self assessment form and got Assessment score :270 . what is usually a good score?? It's just been less than 1 n 1/2 month I have been studying. I planned to take exam by end of December. It looks I like I should extend it.. So far in U world I m getting only 40% .May be I should finish U world 1st then take NBME and then decide. what do you suggest ?? Please reply..

Those numbers are weird, 270 is very good for the uworld self assessment, however getting 40% in uworld does not correlate well with that score on uwsa, I am assuming you are doing 44 question blocks random-timed? try an NBME maybe when you are halfway through the qbank and see how you do on that, I recommend NBME 6 (that is the one I have done so far).

Hey Dr. Tz
Focus on uworld and MTB, keep reviewing, if i were you i would have held the UWSA for closer to the exam. your 3 digit score is not good, but that is understandable because you just started studying. Hold the NBME till at least one complete run of uworld, and maybe another complete revision of MTB. Your 3 digit UWSA score goal should be higher than 225 due to the fact that it over predicts sometimes. And i would say make sure your NBME 3 digit score goal is close to passing(209) or higher than 215. Keep going buddy. I am doing the same thing right now.
Good luck.

O right, sorry I misunderstood your initial score 270 is a great score on the real thing, but I thought you were referring to the predicitive one not the actual score. 154 is low, Dr. Knife gave you some really solid advice, keep on studying. I would suggest to push back your test maybe for a month, to give you that extra time to work on your weak subjects.
