Hey Samiman,

I'm sorry to hear about your unexpected score in the NBME 6. Did you do the test online and legitimately? If yes, then I'd personally postpone the exam. In my experience the NBMEs are really good at predicting your final score +/- 8.

I also got bad NBMEs scores when I was preparing for step 1, postponed it, took more NBMEs with better results after studying harder and got a relatively good final score (>250).

NBMEs are highly predictive, a lot of people say for CK the best is Uworld assessment, you can try with uworld and see how it goes. also how is your score in uworld can give you an idea if you are ready or not. With that score and not great uworld Qbank score i will definitely postpone the exam if i am looking for 230++ if you just want passing score spend this 3 weeks reviewing your weakness and try to find a partner who can help you explaining those difficult areas!

Do they give the score, or do we have to calculate it from the number of questions we got correct?
