Default request for score rechecking

Hi everyone,

I studied for CK,read the kaplan books from cover to cover once, watched the Kaplan Videos. Did the USMLE qbanks twice, along with NBME assessment and U world assessment both of which I passed. I was scored 80% on U world a few weeks before the exam, mixed and timed qbanks. I am not sure how, but I still failed, I was shocked and completely devastated & confused. I got 202 and the passing is 203.I had an error message in the middle of my exam and I was very nervous about the error message,I wrote a letter for NBME about the error and they responded that they are sorry about it but they checked my exam and said everything was ok.I want to submit a request to get my score rechecked. I want to know is there anything I can object against ? honestly the error message was very bad and gave me lots of stress.
I am waiting for your comments
Thank you ahead of time

did you tell the officer in prometric at that time? they should made a report immediately to NBME if the found any problem with the exam.

how was that error message resolved? did you manage to finish your exam? 80% on uw definitely does not correspond to failing! heck even if you got stressed out 220-240 is possible, but fail?? that is of utmost ridiculous!

thanks for response, yes I went out and told the officer about the error, she checked.when I got the error I was at end of 5th block ,I answered the last question then the error came up , I was very freaked out and couldn't see what was that exactly but I saw the last lin that said do you want to continue or finish so I pushed continue and exam went to break time.
when the officer was checking the computer , everything was ok , I was very nervous and freaked out

Your second run of uworld is not really good determinant of how well you'll do on the actual exam... most likely do to residual memory of the questions and answers and possibly explanations of the questions you have already solved... word to word.


Your assessment scores (uwsa or nbme) couple of weeks prior to the exam would be the best indicators of how well you should have performed +/- 10 to 15 points.

So, that brings us to the question of... Did you take any assessments? If so, how did they compare to your actual result?
