I tried searching the previous posts here but didn't find anything satisfactory. My recent NBME scores: NBME 15: 243 NBME 16: 235 NBME 16 felt tougher than 15 to me. I felt it had many tricky bumps. I had to make many educated guesses on this one. I have heard all the time that the real exam compares to nothing but how much can one correlate from those scores? I am planning to give NBME 17 tomorrow maybe. I have a target of 250+, but I keep making silly mistakes and miss 1-2 questions per block (stupidly) and its costing me big time. I hope that is not the case next week. I know nothing much can be done now except to revise FA and whatever notes I have with me. The more I think of it, its making me even more anxious. Sometimes I feel like after doing only questions and questions all the time, the background of knowledge whatever if I had has been disappearing behind. Does that happen to anyone else? Thanks in advance.
