    as Hell. How the Heck did that Happen? I have never failed an NBME shelf exam before. I read the Blueprints three times, did Pretest Once and got a 15 Percentile-64 questions raw? GD I am so dissapointed right now. I get to take it again, but I dont think I know how to study any different. It is so wierd, I walked out of that test thinking I did really well-and I NEVER think that after a shelf exam. Gosh I would appreiciate some advice

    Thanks : (

      Is it possible that you filled in the circles incorrectly--got off one question or something? Sounds like you put your time in. I'm sure you'll do fine when you retake it.
