I know the section banks are suppose to be harder, I've studied over 3 months and keep getting the same score on practice exams but I am getting a lot of questions correct on the section bank. I know when I take the exam I mentally feel like it will determine my fate..

Could it be possibly test anxiety?

What practice exams are you taking? They aren't all made equal. AAMC FLs are by far the most indicative of your real performance.

If you have been taking and doing poorly on AAMC FLs, it could be test anxiety, or you could be struggling to stay mentally attenuated for 7.5 hours, which is pretty common and gets better the more FLs you take.

AAMC full length I struggle with. But AAMC section bank I do much better.
