NBME 6 score of 340/204

11/7/2013 11:02:42 PM
I just scored 340/204 on NBME 6. I have my exam in 1 week. What should I do?

Never mind....I postponed my exam to Dec 12th.

Seriously, I feel the CK questions are much more twisted than the Step 1 questions. Some foolish people have spread rumors that the CK is easier than the Step 1....well I have news for you: that's a lie! CK definitely covers less material than Step 1, but the questions are much longer and much more perverted.

The CK NBMEs, too, are graded in a twisted manner. I got 44 wrong on NBME 6 and they gave me a 340/204...I mean, WTF. If you get 44 wrong on any Step 1 NBMEs, that's a 450+ on the 3-digit scale.

Sorry for the rant, but I had to let it all out!! I scored a 221 on the Step 1 and have to score higher than that on the CK. BTW, where is everyone on this forum?

Hey, I do feel your pain. I was feeling comfortable with my knowlegde and Q banks I've been doing. Got the exact same result on NMBE. I thought it must have been a fluke. So I did 2 more forms, each 10 days apart with full time studying, and my score was almost the same! I got so depressed I postponed my test and now I am wondering how do I approach this?!

Hey guys ... dont freak out ... I did NBME 4 and I have got 198 ... and my exam was after 10 days ... I was depressed and I did not have a time ..I wanted to take exam before the pulling to get to the match... after 3 days I did UWSA and I got 221 ... I went to the exam ... the questions are not easy its like a game show ... I had questions with 10 and 15 choices ... I get out and I felt baaad then the result came and I took 235 ... I was happy and now i am in the match .. believe me .. jus concentrate and If you take in UWSA above 220 .. go the exam . BTW : the match = connections unless you get +250 on steps ... thank you

Jadoo, Thank you so much for supportive words! I really appreciate it. I yet have to do UWORLD simulation. I postponed my exam unfortunately few days before I had to start full time job, now I have to juggle work & studying, but I am not giving up. I wish I was as brave a you. Will keep you in my thoughts while pushing to take the test by the end of the year. Thanks again!

Thanks for the replies everyone.

I actually studied like hell for 2 weeks and took my exam yesterday (Nov 20th). The exam was very tiring. The first couple of blocks and the last couple of blocks were not that bad...but the middle two blocks were out of this world.

Overall, the exam was very similar to NBMEs except the questions were longer. When I walked out Prometric, I felt horrible...I'll get my score on Dec 11th...can't wait!!

I'll keep you guys posted.

Did you do another assesment before u walk in? And did u feel UW helped you and if so what was your uw % currently?


11/21/2013 8:16:51 PM
hello as someone who's taken it. please don't take CK until you get at least a 240 on your nbme.

Wow that is amazing. And congrats on matching residency! Any other advice. I just took it and scored horribly but have my exam in 7 weeks. Any advice on what to do. That NBME absolutely crushed me. Thank you

Dude, that was quite a rant, totally understandable though. Hope it didn’t turn out as bad as it sounded. 🤓 And also you’re kind of doing a good job of scaring the rest of us to study well!👌
