Frankly I am very scared right now. My NBME 13 predicted score is 150. I took it when I have done 1 pass of Pathoma, 80% of FA and 70% of USMLE-Rx. I am starting UWorld next week. I understand everything but I have problems retaining information. Please tell me what study plan I should implement in order to score 230-240 on the real deal? Is it possible in 3 months?

Please give me some advice!

What subjects were your bad ones? I know you can get to passing in 3 months, easy. But first, we gotta figure out why you're missing questions. Go through each wrong question (and correct ones if you flat out guessed) and ask yourself why you got it wrong. Was it just didn't know, read the question wrong, got it down to 50/50, time issues, etc. Once you figure out which (or all) was your issue, you can start to work on that.

If it's a knowledge, just didn't know issue. That's okay. I liked Boards and Beyond as he went over everything and tied it to some clinical aspects, plus he gave FA pages numbers that matched his videos. And then is physiology was a problem I really liked physeo. The videos could be long, like 40 minutes for a cardio video, but with that one video, I finally could picture in my head what the heart chambers were doing.

Just keep studying and don't give up. Before hitting uworld, I would suggest trying Kaplan qbank to make sure that you are understanding basic concepts.

I plan to study for 3 months straight. Please tell me what study plan I should implement in order to score 230-240 on the real deal? Is it possible in 3 months?
