I just took my first sample test NBME form 6 and it predicted my score to be a 211. I didn't feel like the test was incredibly hard while I was doing it but I did so poorly. I already finished UWorld and I plan to redo all the questions I got wrong again. Other than that I'm not sure what else to do. I have about 3 more weeks before the real deal. I'm real bummed out because I have been studying so hard and I just feel a bit discouraged. Any tips and suggestions are appreciated.

Like you said NBME 6 isn't a difficult NBME hence the curve is much harsher. I'm concerned that you scored that low on it, have you taken any UWSAs? They are more representative of the actual exam. Also, what is your target score?

I just took the uworld sample assessment 1 today and got a 237. My score report shows that medicine is what is really holding me back. I only got 60% of the medicine questions correct. I plan on going over all of the uworld questions I got wrong again. Any other suggestions as to what may help with improving my medicine knowledge?

The medicine component covers quite a number of subjects, you should try and do the entire thing (medicine) again on uworld.

If you're interested in direct assistance with raising your score, myself and several other colleagues work as USMLE tutors. We'd be delighted to work one-on-one with you to eliminate knowledge gaps and improve your ability to analyze and answer questions. 3-4 weeks is plenty of time to pull off a successful Step 2 CK; don't wait until it's a week prior to get help if you need it. You can PM me if you like, or visit our website at www.medboardtutors.com if you're interested.
