Star NBME predictivity

Hi everyone,

I was comparing my NBME score with my exam score, and I noticed that psychiatry was not predictive at all.
The rest of the topics were pretty much kind of consistent but psych not at all. I actually got stars for psych in the NBME, while my performance was pretty bad in it in the real exam.

What do you think?
It seems that psych is a tough subject in the real exam ...

It is possible. I am not so surprised, because I didn't focus too much on psych during my preparation.

I think this result just confirms that psych is a difficult subject in the real exam, and that people should study it from different/more updated sources...
