Any last minutes advice?

UWSA is more predictive for CK.

No need to be concerned, if you read other people's experiences you will notice that form 7 underpredicts (is tougher). You should take another NBME and you will see scores closer to your UWSA

It is so ... I really got upset and went in depression because of the 21 points drop from uwsa.
It's difficult and different from uwsa .. stem question was long and time management was hard .

I wont recommend this nbme closer to your exam time .. If you wanna take it then take it a month earlier
