Default MAJOR ADVICE NEEDED- EXAM IN 3 days!

Hey everyone, I have run into a dilemma. I don't know what to do and any advice would be helpful.

I have prepared for the CK and have done well and did nbmes and uwsa:

NBME 6 (2 weeks ago): 244
NBME 7 (5 days ago): 224
UWSA (today): 186

This makes no sense to me. Could anyone tell me if it's still a good idea to go into the exam? I don't see how I could drop this many points in such a short period? Let me know what you think! Thanks!

Hey Stepp!

Indeed it doesn't make a lot of sense. I heard NBME 7 (haven't taken myself) is harder than other NBMEs so I wouldnt worry about this. But ur UWSA is considerably low. Did u may take UWSA late at night and u were very tired? What about ur UW overall score so far? Also Take NBME 4. If above 230 then I assume UWSA was an outlier...

I am definitely tired, mind wasn't as focused as it could be... I made some really stupid, easy mistakes because I wasn't reading right, and it sucks because I was feeling good going into my exam. Uworld is >80% on 2nd round so it went well... I believe it's a outlier and hopefully all goes well. Thanks!

relax and give nbme 4 to boost your confidence. Your nbme 6,7 scores are pretty decent (people usually score in 240s if they get above 220 in nbme 7). Like the above person said uwsa seems to be an outlier. Take nbme 4 with a calm mind. Good luck

Check your nbme scores again. Because NBME gives two scores. The NBME scores and USMLE co-relation. I remember reading on the forums about a guy who misinterpreted his NBME scores. He did clear the exam though.
