This is strange. Your scores in the banks are very high. You should easily score 99 on the NBME. :notsure::notsure:

I'd say take another NBME, but search the forums about what form is the best estimator. May be fellow users might help you with this in the following replies.

Those qbank scores are fine - just calm down, relax, and do another NBME after doing some random timed blocks in UWor if you've completed the whole bank then maybe consult. You've still got 3 weeks and you'll be able to pick up the balance by that time. I'm sure of it. Keep at it! Good luck!

If your nbme is that low, trust me, push back your date.
You need to hit the qbanks, including kaplan, usmleworld and usmlerx more.

You can solve this, but it will take some time. continue to do questions and do lots. I think you need to overload on questions for a couple weeks, to get your mind in the 8 hour onset.

Do another NBME, you must have been out of your mind when you did the form 6 :p

Do another NBME

You should definitely take another NBME. Form 7 is the best I guess (I'll take it myself in 2 weeks time)

something must have been wrong while you were taking form 6... you didn't have a good night's sleep I imagine. Don't panic.
If the other form gives you a similar score then you should push the exam back and review the weaknesses. 2 weeks will be just fine.

please let us know what you decide and what's your new score

Best of luck.

Take a couple of NBMEs (try 7 and 5) and see how they go. The NBMEs are usually decent at predicting your actual scores. Were you nervous/stressed when you were doing form 6? Pressure/stress may have had something to do with the lower than expected score. Try to be on your best while doing the NBMEs and treat it like the real test.

Good luck!!
