    thanks for the tidbit of reassurance, I will take an NBME in about a week I'm just scared I'll score like in the low 200's or something (instead of making progress up to 230 which is the ideal outcome if I work on my weak areas for next 7 days). I'm scared since uwsa is supposed to over predict and the curve is extremely lenient 64% was a 220 whereas anything below 75% is a fail on nbme's since they changed the grading scale

      Well I guess uwsa does overpredict

      Nbme 19: 205

      I am so demotivated right now just when I thought all my hard work was finally starting to pay off (due to ok uwsa scores) I get hit with a low nbme. There is no way I will hit 230, what do I do now exam is in 9 days?

        Alright what you guys recommend I do? Nbme 18: 213


        It says I'm weak on msk GI and CVS
        Says I'm good on renal and endocrine but these are the 2 sections I still have left to do my final passes on in FAP, if I don't move my exam back do I do renal and endo for completeness sake/my psychological need to go through everything twice

        or do I go on to my weak areas even though I just literally went over msk
