Help Did NBME form 2 and scored 207!

Hi,

So I did form 2 today and wasnt happy with the score (400=207). I have been studying from kaplan LN,mtb, UW(scored 69%), kaplan Q bank(finished round 40% of it with av score 65%). I reviewed UW from another student's notes which highlighted the main concepts. Reviewed kaplan LN once too.

So knowing all this..what would be the best way to ensure a good score? My exam is set on feb 27. Would it be wise to review UW or MTB? or push my exam till march?

Your feedback would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

that what I am try to say .. head up and try again . I like idea of uw again but do another assesment NOW to be reliable about your weak points and correct them if left to end you will not have time to correct
good luck

well
Uwsa keep to last eve though it overestimate but more reliable than the other
NBME 3 from what people said that very hard I am afraid you will score bad and that will effect your studying
go with either NBME 4 ( that good predictor ) or NBME 1 ( I don't now any thing about this may be good or not easy or difficult ) I hope another member can answer you

Default in trouble i guess

hi i stopped studying for about a month due to personal issues n when i finally got to it, tested myself with UWSA n scored 190!!! oh nooo.....

exam's in a mth... what do i do to improve it? should i take an NBME for another evaluation? my weak points are surgery n psychiatry. the other subjects are all above borderline. surgery was the worst which is weird cos that the one that gave me 69% for UW offline. i havent finished all of UW online n kaplan qbank. my kaplan is at 55% and UW at 58% (both about 800 - 1000 questions done)...

suggestions plss??? i can squeeze about 4 to 6 hrs of studying in a day because i have to work from 8am till 2pm everyday at the clinic for the next one mth (for my dermatology rotation).

thank u so much for all help.

(btw, if all i wanted was to jst pass the exam, what should my uwsa n nbme scores be? what's the passing mark now that the marking system has changed a bit?)

I'd do UW again. Mind u, I've not taken CK, but my hubby has and was limited on time, so used no books, but used UW and got thru 90% of it, in detail, and did well.

ok ill do that. thx. sounds like the best idea for me as i only have a month left. and i havent done all my uw questions. need to extend my subscription. it expired.

do u know the passing mark for ck though? whats the 3 digit passing score since they changed the 2 digit scores now. very confusing.

thanks again
