Default EXAM in 2 days!

Hi everyone,

I wanted some advice. My exam is in two days, 3 weeks ago I did NBME2 and scored 300, then figured to postpone and study a bit more.

Last night I wrote NBME3 and my score went DOWN to 260. I am not sure how 3 weeks of studying made it worse, but I am frustrated and confused.

Should I postpone? Or should I write another NBME? Or should I just review everything in these next 48 hours and chance it?

Any constructive criticism would be really appreciated.
Thanks

300 n 260 are both very good scores.

the word is nbme3 underestimates scores. try another nbme or jst relax. u will do really well.

Those were the assessment scores so they're equating to usmle's 183 then went down to 174.

Its way too close to borderline. Why not postpone? No real use in taking it now, more than enough time b4 app season starts. Another mth won't hurt.
Would u be happy just passing or even with under 200, don't risk it. Even worse u can end up failing.
