Default Need Help- exam in 10d

I need some advice here guys

I have my exam planned on 7/23 and today I took nbme 4 and scored 420~221

What I did so far: kaplan once
Uworld ~ 62% first time then did all the incorrect and half the marked questions

FA as a primary source of study

Took uwsa 6 weeks ago and scored 226

The score doesn't make any sense, did I really screw up in the past 6 weeks?

BTW, I was fasting while doing the NBME, could that have affected my performance that bad?

your advice is appreciated

Thanks

my advice is look at the score as a dot on a linear regression scale for example if u scored 270 it doesn't mean you will get it cause there is a chance it is an outlier and it has to be excluded in that case, what ur score means is that your within the range of 220 to 230 .

good luck and i wish u the best bro I myself have the exam in the 28th and Im freaking too but when I remember that I am not going through what my brothers in gaza are going through I thank Allah so no time to freak out or procrastinate
