Both NBME and UWSA are helpful but I think NBME can be a better correlator because you take 4 NBME tests but only one USWA.
I hoped so but I did not see any repeated NBME question on my real exam.

I made this account one year ago, but had not had anything to post. I just read other helpful posts and say thank you to all of those who share their experiences here

Thanks, I did not work while studying. I studied fulltime and reviewed Kaplan Lecture notes and UW several times: (Surgery: only once; IM, Obs&Gyn, Ped and Psych: 3-4 times; UW: Twice).
Sorry, what mtb stands for?

Congratulations very happy with ur success man

I know it is too much and u must be celebrating but can u please write down how much did u get in each self assesment exam I guess you got the 265 in UWSA as it is always overestimating what about each NBMEs score individually please. and how long were they from the exam?

Thank good luck in ur trip

You are right. 264 was for UWSA (780).
NBME 1 was 265 (650)
NBME 2 was 251 (590)
NBME 3 was 253 (600)
NBME 4 was 251 (590)

Hamza don't worry, you will finish the last 900 questions quickly, most information will repeat, I used to complete 2 block/d in the last questions

The 2 digit score no longer exists almost 1 year ago
Your score will include a weird 2 digit score that is not reported to any 3rd party ! So essentially, a 2-digit score no longer exist bro

Sure. Never give up
You can improve your CV doing some research/USCS and then apply for as many programs as you can.
