Exam is this week. Here are my practice tests:

NBME 6: 196
UWSA: 228
NBME 7: 200

I'm not understanding why my NBME's are so low! I have a 60% average on UWorld and I've been doing better as of late on my blocks.

What should I do? I've done Kaplan, and MTB (x2). I've been going through Online MedEd as of late.

What is the next NBME I should do? Has anyone taken the new CK that can comment?

Took it in last week of June. NBME 7 is supposed to be the toughest, while NBME 4,6 are generally regarded to be more close to the actual score, as is UWSA. I am not really sure what you should do next as you have used the standard resources but nbme 3 seems to be the sensible thing to do. If you score around the same range, perhaps you may have to consider postponing the exam? (hope it does not come to that but scoring around 200 is not where you want to be though nbme for ck are not considered very predictive of the score). That way you would still have nbme 4 left to do later.

I have taken the ck exam 10 days back. it is very challenging. The questions have long stems,distracting details ,or just simply wierd .and time is a big factor. so i would say, practice as much as u can, and from wherever u can.be better prepared. Good luck.
