IMG here, I am planning to take step 1 on 6th Sept, did nbme 18 in June and nbme 16 in July

I am going to do nbme 17 on the 30th to decide wether to take the exam or push it a couple of weeks to polish weaknesses

Is nbme 17 predictive of the real test score?

I used FA, Uworld more intensely than FA, and Pathoma

Any advice appreciated

What were your scores on nbme 18 and 16? Are you planning on taking UWSA1 and 2?

My scores weren't that great in nbme 16 and 18 like 205 probably as I did them in the middle of dedicated (a big mistake)

I did nbme 17 and I got 219, I cancelled my test and now I am going to repeat uworld one more time and correlate it with FA...

Did UW assessment forms 1 and 2 and got 230 and 220 respectively again that was earlier in my study period (June, July and August now extended to September)

Should I do 15 in two weeks and see? I am planning to push it a month so 6th Sept to 6th October and do nbme every two weeks (I only have 15 and 19) left :(

I am aiming at 240+
