Hi guys!!

I just took NBME form 7 and I got a score of 490 that's 220.. I got 62% in UWSA1 and 68% in UWSA2.. I got exam in 9 days.. these days I am not able to study much may be due to anxiety.. do u think I should postpone the exam?? I know my weak areas and I guess I can revise that in 3 days..

plz help!!!:notsure:

Hi Shikha, it depends on what sort of a score you are aiming for.. If you are looking for a score of 220ish then 10 days of review should suffice. But if you are planning for a 230-240 score then you might need to revise a bit more and take an NBME..?

I don't want to scare you

It looks like you are not very well prepared.

First of all the UWSA does not give percentages it gives scores like the NBME. So are you sure you did the right UWSA!

Second, if you are so anxious in the last days, then you won't do good in the exam and you will likely fail it.

I don't want to scare you but I don't want you to ruin your future.

Revise more, relax, do more questions, then do another NBME and once you cross the 500 score you are good to go and take the exam

Hey there.. stay calm!!

Your scores are good and your probably going to pass with good grades... Wht i would suggest now is to just read the FA book... Theres no point in doing any more assessements and its more important to just go over small but quickly reviewable subjects in the FA book.

220 is a good score, specially since the USMLE is getting harder and harder each year.. So dont think 220 is bad, its actually really really good now.

I agree with JJ that 220 these days is not that bad a score. And if you revise your weak areas - specially from first aid im sure that gets you a few points bonus.

I would suggest form 6, apart from form 7 that is the closest to the exam. Good Luck.
