Default In desperate need of advice

took nbme 7 just now scored 420 (221) feel really down, I mean I don't know what to do now. when I gave nbme 4 about 2 weeks ago and got about the same score, I was really disappointed, but it kind of made me more motivated, I increased my study time, focused totally on ck, in one word I started working really hard, knowing that I scored low because I didn't work hard enough

and know I see that I was doing it without result, I just don't know what to do now, I cant study 24/7 although for sure i'm studying 10-11 hours a day. I ve finished UW, made notes, read MTBs many times, I'm really motivated, I study with all my heart, I don't feel burned out or anything, I don't have any personal problems

I feel like I can't do anything I feel so hopeless and lost

can anyone suggest anything, my eligibility period ends in march

Hey don't lose hope, it's natural to feel down but never lose hope..
I'd say you mark your weak areas & focus solely on them, do kaplan if you want or do any other qbank for them..You still have more than a month, take a date for end of march & if u feel confident then go & do it !! (:
Hope this helps

ICUinWonderland -

Firstly, Relax. It is common to feel this way at times. Keep working hard and stay determined, your score will improve if you stay persistent.

Also, Nbme 7 is notorious for predicting lower score than actual, you can check out the previous threads. I would advise you to give UWSA in a few weeks time. You have nearly a month with you, which is great! Keep up the momentum and give the exam. You can't really expect one NBME to magically predict your actual score.

Give this thread a read, It is NOT always about the assessment scores!
I had a similar experience as you with regard the NBMEs and have given my inputs. Good Luck!
