Shocked after finishing NBME-4, Need support

7/29/2013 6:56:37 AM
I just finished NBME 4 yesterday and got 280( 191) after that I am really shocked. I did total 55 mistakes, and over all 70% questions correct. I was about to schedule my exam on 4th Sept. my average in UW is 66% with random time mood. I am lost ,I do not what to do. People are scoring 70% on UWSA and getting 230+, why NBME so ??

I do not know may be I was fasting the whole day and after that I started NBME, I did 37mistakes in first 2 blocks and 18 mistakes in last 2 blocks. I think I could have have perform much better, But still why after getting 70% answers correct just 191. I mean WTH man.
what kind of scale is it ?? Hell frustrated and feeling much down......
My target for CK is 240+. If anyone wants to revise NBME-4 please inbox me.
Waiting for your input and support. Thanks in advance.

i took nmbe2 had almost same results 4 months back while doing uworld in 70s
but Again i bought uworld online went for nbme1 240 and 236 UWSA 2 months back but my scoring is 80 percent timed tutor mood now hitting high 80s and 90s.
uworld is learning tool not scoring tool where you stand never know but i think nbme is more predictive of ur score.
i think you need to redo all mcqs and understand their concepts its abt learning not scoring in uworld never.read mtb2.3 and fa which ever you like. i will take nbme4 in few days will share experience with you.

Agreed with tiger.U world is a learning tool for sure so dont get predictions from UWORLD cumulative graphs
