Default Tip Of the day

You need to pass any NBME by 10 points before you pay money . Don't pay money until you reach this point . Then you don't have to ask for postponement. Then plan your revision and pick date .
No plus 200 in any NBME no paying the money. You not ready .

I think this cut-off is a bit arbitrary but I'd definitely recommend to have passing scores before committing yourself for the exam and having to pay for it twice!

Yes it is still not clear when to pay .
But now you have an idea . with a result of 200 plus
You can work out how long you need to do repeat readings of uworld /FA
and accordingly pick the 3 month period You not obligated to pick the immediate 3 months .
You can pick a 3 months period that is 2, 3 months from now or more .
You can make lots of judgements from this point .
Remember you cant go on stuyding indefinitely . Also you near writing
once you get to 200 . 2 more readings is all you need to get there
Shouln't be more than 2 months . If you need more than 2 months
something not right.
