I think nbme 2 and 3 are outdated that's why the curve is so bad on those tests

Talked to another guy on a different forum and he got 206 on nbme 3 with 80 percent correct but he averaged around 230 on nbme 4 and uwsa tests

Yeah I guess, I'm just so used to taking these nbmes like for step 1 to gauge my progress

Does anyone know why nbme gives so little attention to ck? There's like 15 forms for step 1 and barely four for step 2

I've a 520 on NBME 6 online but I don't know how many mistakes I made.
In a few days I will take form 3.
I'm too confused with my result which is jumped from 450-520-450.
But maybe I have a gap in my studies.
