You are ready to rock this exam man!

best thing for you to do now that you exam is in short order is to do some First Aid, keep the qbank questions flowing and most importantly the day before you exam is to throw the books away and relax.

I am a BIG BIG fan of relaxing the day before, a clear mind and letting it rest for a day will do wonders. So fight that urge to "study just a little more".

Hi there:

My guess would be, based on the scores you've posted, that you're headed to a score around 200 give or take 10 points. I'd guess that would be somewhere between 85 and 92 two digit.

Looks like your UWSA2 score is very different from your NBME scores. I'd suggest you look into why... Is there a particular area you're weak at? I'd work on that before doing another NBME. 10 days may be feasible, but remember - on actual exam day - you will be tired and you must prepare for the worst.

Hope thats helpful. Good luck!

Hmm - 440 is a hit or miss... and 15 days isn't a lot of time... Are there are particular areas you feel you haven't covered completely? Have you finished FA a couple of times and then finished UW questions at least once thoroughly? If that is the case, I'd recommend postponing for a bit and re-doing some of your weaker areas. If you're not done with FA or UW, finish them like mad over over next 2-3 days and then do another NBME - maybe one of the newer forms and then see how you're doing. If you're not happy with your score that day, I'd postpone, but odds are you might be pleasantly surprised. Hope this helps! :)
