I got this score back. It doesnt make any sense to me. The exam i felt was fair, i checked answers after - yes there was some i got wrong but there was more right than wrong. 3 days prior to sitting, i free 120 timed (old) and scored 68.5%. I felt there was some issue with submission when i asked the proctor what the submission process was like since there was no (final submit exam button). my screen just went black after i completed my 7 blocks. I and the proctor assumed this was normal. Im a little blown away i scored that low. I did a only 2 other NBME's IN AN EXAM SETTING - one around 55% (NBME 30) 2 months prior, and 64% 1 month prior (NBME 27). I did the rest of the NBME's as practice questions (not timed, block then review. block then review method) so i will not be using those scores as an accurate representation.
I do not think there was a problem with SCORING my exam (so recheck is useless obviously) but i have a feeling there was a glitch error. Like people score in the 170 range before they begin prep... how tf did i score lower after months of prep? Im just stunned. Im going to be calling USMLE tomorrow but i was hoping someone could tell me that this MAY happen and it DOES happen once in a blue moon? Im going to call both the proctor location and USMLE HQ tomorrow and inquire about logistical mistakes that could have happened.
