New NBME Form 13 is Out!
 
I just logged into my account on the NBME site and to my surprise I see an NBME form 13!! It says "new" beside it in red text.

http://usmle-forums.com/images/added...st/nbme-13.JPG

Let further confusion and speculation about the NBME forms begin!

Anybody have any info on this form? It's difficulty in relation to the others, namely 7,11,12?

timmalik007 03-03-2012 05:06 PM

I also saw it on the website, I think its the most new form so its exactly matches with the exam.
I am also planning to take 7 and then maybe 13 online, lets see.

d_wiqed 03-03-2012 05:08 PM

Dr.Nick! Why don't you take it and tell us? Happy-2 Come on, now... You'll be known as the NBME 13 "pioneer"! :))

Ok. I'm just poking fun at you. ;) I'm not being superstitious, but of all the numbers the nbme had left out...

Why didn't they skip #13?! :p

We'll be glad to hear your feedback about nbme 13. Thank you! :)

oh that is true , 13 , so now I ve done 7 and was planning to take 11 and 12 , now , what ????
if anyone did please tell us how is it ????

StepTaker 03-03-2012 06:19 PM

I also noticed that they have removed Form 4 and kept Form 3!

So now we have Forms 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, and 13.

It looks like they'll always leave us with seven assessment forms.

We've updated our poll accordingly, see here

Waw!!
I was thinking abt when I am going to do 7,11,12 now there's 13...?

LatinGeorge 03-03-2012 06:34 PM

Does this mean, new questions will be added to the actual exam, or this is just something they do every certain time?... :confused:

Dr.NickRiviera 03-03-2012 06:38 PM

Oh the histeria!

really depends on how u want to use it, if u have plenty of time, and u are using it as part of yr study tools then self paced is good... i will recommend standard paced for all form if u using it to assess yr standing on real usmle.. self pace is 4hrs per block, and standard paced is 1 hrs and 5 mins per block.

Fookushima 03-03-2012 08:47 PM

after going thru the Q i got wrong in nbme 13... a lot of silly mistakes....... different btw standard paced and self paced.... in standard paced , u r under constant time pressure.... One day left b4 my real exam, cheers!!

LatinGeorge 03-03-2012 09:17 PM

will you recommend it more than form 6?

hypermedic 03-04-2012 01:04 AM

after solving the whole blocks in nbme can i still review them back, i mean the question and choices? and if i paid the extra ten dollars can i know which question is wrong?

patho2012 03-04-2012 01:09 AM

form 13 ...
 
@fookushima: In the standard paced mode, can we pause at anytime and return to the test later? Does FA help to nail the 13 form in your opinion? Thanks.
Good luck!

Do all nbme if possible whether offline or online, but definetely hav to do f7 online bcoz most forum said this is closest correlation to real exam score and f11 they said is the closest format.

Offline version nbme, u hav to becareful of the answer given, a lot of mistakes. i highly recommend to get answer from discussion in forum, to me they are more accurate. read several forums to get the best answer and explanation.

if u pay extra 10 USD, when u complete all the blocks in nbme and get yr score, they will show the Q u got wrong, but only the Q and answer choice that u get wrong. they will not show u which one is correct answer.. u can visit forums and read from discussion to get the answer. Highly recommend to read from several forum, more accurate.

if u decided NOT to pay extra 10 USD, u will only know yr score. u will never know which Q u got wrong. I recommend pay the extra 10 bucks;D

yes, if u are doing one of the block halfway thru , u can pause the test and complete it any time after dat. FA is a MUST not just for nbme but EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!.. by hook or crook swallow the whole book raw... and make sure u understand what u swallowing ;D

I feel 12 is too easy... i think do 11 or 13 instead of 12.. .. I highly recommend do 7.. so f7 and 11/13 for me is important .

ali.aggarwal5 03-08-2012 10:51 PM

Noooo!!! It came 3 days before my exam!! :toosad:
I didn't even know lest I should've given it.
2-3 questions were repeated from NBME 12, maybe some would've been from 13 too.

I did form 13 today and got a score of 235. Did form 11 a week ago and scored 240 on that. 13 is a bit more tough (i did make some inexcusable errors though). Some questions do ask kinda vague things. Have to still do form 7. I have exactly a week till my exam!!

mister 03-14-2012 08:27 PM

form 13
 
just bought 7,11,12 and 13, will let you guys know the results my test is in 2 wks form now

Hey has anybody taken NBME 13 or planning to take it ????????

avash.nrs 03-16-2012 09:25 PM

i am planning to do it on 24th..have u done it??

Hitman 03-16-2012 09:59 PM

planning it on 18 th , this sunday , lets see.. still couldnt find the offline version so will be difficult to study all Qs again of discuss any ...... other than wrong ones , since dont have muh time want to do it earlier as may need time to search for ans .......

MedPharm 03-16-2012 10:14 PM

i did it:) i'd say it's ok...nothing to worry too much about, but it has a lot of 'wrong friends' you know qs like: oh i know 'takes A'..wait a moment...hmmm...-> i felt the whole nbme like that

engraved 03-18-2012 09:44 PM

Any other feedback on it?

phharsh 03-23-2012 10:53 AM

hey guys!

NBME form 13 was tough!!
really weird anat questions. horrible immuno questions.
fortunately scored 240 somehow.

was really distressed after completing it. thought my score would sink below 220. was happy to see a score of 580 (corresponds to 240)

the weirdest thing was that I scored 240 on form 7 two weeks back and I had 23 questions wrong. this one i got 29 questions wrong and my score was still 240.
Even funnier was that i scored 240 on form 5 too.

So I think if you get 20-30 wrong in the entire exam, your score would still read 240. In the real deal it would be double. maybe 40-60 wrong= 240s.

here's my opinion,
form 12(offline) was the easiest
form 3(offline) was easy
form 5(240) was easy
form 6(247) was easy
form 11(245) was ok
form 7(240) was tough
form 13(240)- toughest

just praying now and a final revision from FA. exam in 5 days and hope to cross 220.

Yes, Form 13 is the new form. I did that form before my exam and it was highly reflective of my final score. i did forms 11, 13 and 7. All the best for your exam!!

hypermedic 07-12-2012 10:03 AM

what about 12

i was thinking of 11 12 13 but i see u did 7 , what do u think?

i think enshalla i will do 7 offline and 11 12 13 online

mister 07-12-2012 10:13 AM

nbme´s
 
those are what i did (7,11,12,13) the most accurate for me was #12 number 7 is probably one of the easiest among those, since #11 was the hardest for me I recomend to my friends do that first and work on your weakness based on the results (i bought the one with feedback), in your case in which yo are only 1 week away i would do 11 first and 7 at the end, if you do 11 at the end you might feel not very confident the day of your exam as if you finish strong with nbme 7 youll feel more confident
those are my suggestions hope they help
good luck

I think form 7 should be done online. It has the most data so it should best correlate to your actual score. I did not do form 12, so I cannot comment on that. Here we're my scores to give you an idea. All forms were done online.

NBME 11(did this first) - 240
NBME 13 - 238
NBME 7(did this last) - 240
Step 1 exam - 241

Form 7 is highly consistent with you score on the exam!!!
