Thanks you sis

Really??? I felt it was even easier than NBME 7..... I also felt they are almost the same.... asking very very similar things, just from different edges.

On some other forum ppl say NBME 15 overestimated their score.... I don't know..... 

Even it's far from 269, but I am still happy for 228.... 9 points in 18 days, 10 more days left.... so maybe above 230???? Fingers crossed....


Oh if ppl said over estimate then ,take their words since I have not try 15 or 13 but 13 is tough so ... logically 15 can be harder but u did the test so u know better . Still ur 7 is 219 so as far as 220 that hits mean & good I think.
Keep calm, relax, review well ... more points shell come wink

b4 15 out some said 7 , some said 11 or 12 are closer so , actually they r around range but key is the day of the exm how u did so... keep reviewing well & calm , sleep well night b4 ... that will give u better ... best outcome nod

Go Sis Go Igot269 Gonod

yes sis u are right, we will only know when we get the score......

Thanks for the wishes wink


7 days to go...

I can't sleep at night, dreaming all those things that I read...

Can't wake in the morning..... Head is so so heavy and whole body is so heavy...

Trying to start on exam day sleep wake up schedule.... otherwise I noticed I don't perform well in the morning bc I am so sleepy, & scores from afternoon is way better bc my brain is completely woke up.... 

Thanks to my beautiful mom who is taking care of my baby for a while, otherwise I am dead by now already with these dead tight schedules.......

Dear UW, I am almost there to finish you wink 


Just finished all the UW......... But last 2 blocks are just finished & I was so excited being finished so cant resist my self to update my journal grin  I still have to go over that last 2 blocks which might take a whole day...

Started with 50% ended with 69% 61th percentile....... last blocks were higher so I don't care if it is 69% over all, bc last blocks were almost always over 70% some were even 80% ..... I have 682 over all wrong answers... will try to go over them again if I COULD......

I am a fan of writing thins, so I collected almost 5 notebook since I started the journey, and I have to go over them once at least. Its a lot but hope it worths it. Have to go over my weak areas on FA tooo....... Really, I have really lot to doooooo

From tomorrow, will do one NBME a day but offline. And last 3 days would only be revising my notes & maybe wrong Q's from UW....

I Love Medicine

I will get 269 grin


Pl do at least 1 nbme online .

Go igot269 go nod

Review well, stay calm nod & GL nodcoolnodgrinnodwinknodsmiling face

will try wink ;D


NBME 11 offline 159/200 according to forum members calculating method its 222.6 shaking head


Hey offline nbme us not a good co relation of score! Online is
It's just good for practicing! Do another online I would say!


Hi yes Peanut & Shwe, right,  online is better.....

I don't know if I do one online or not :P 

NBME...... I don't know how the scores are so close???? I've  just finished NBME 12, I know it's not accurate & answer sheet is not 100% reliable. 12 was the hardest for me, weird Q's sad ...... when I was checking my result I felt that I was not marking that much wrong ones & was so exited but after alll -> still almost 40Q's wrong sad  162/200 means roughly 226 ....

NBME 7 online 219

NBME 15 online 228

NBME 11 offline 222

NBME 12 offline 226.... they are so close........ where is my 269 sad sad sad I really wish I could extend, when I mentioned extension last week, I faced LOOOTS of negative feedback from my ppl around...... everyone is forcing me to finish this test n live some normal life........ even my parents said "if u extend your exam, I am afraid u end up with schizophrenia" haha really, they really said that.....

5 days left..... will review these 200 Q from nbme 12 which i just finished... it will take a whole day...... days are running fast but slow.....

Go Go Goooo smiling face




igot 269 , hope u follow ur gut/instint ... say u shell do it now or after few wk extension .
u know best ... after score out u cannot change ... well u know ur strength , stamina so ... u make a call w/o pressure from surrounding but ... be honest to ur self what ever u decided , we will support u here .

If like to go for it ... like I said b4, calm, but review study wisely & well... plus believe in ur self frustration , too much stress ie bad stress , yes u still need tiny stress / tiny hyper to make u go through the exm well .

All the best & GLnodcoolnodgrinnodwinknodsmiling face

yes shwe, that's what I thought too, and wanted to extend..... But it's complicated.... I couldn't extend..... I have to complete the exam by next Mon bc I have loots of duty afterwards sad .......


Thanks for the honest advice, always wink 

Good luck to you too.... How are you doing lately? I was so busy so haven't visit your journal lately grin


I struggled a lot and in the end I decided not to do online form of NBME since it doesn't change anything now.... Even they indicate my weak areas, but I can't make it right in 3 days....

So I did NBME 13 offline today, just finished it.... Now I am used to sit for 4 hours long exam :P but not willing to do 7 hours training LOL

13 was the easiest for me, I was happy and like oh yea this is it, finally 39, 42, 44, 43 means 235.... Not that low but NOT so high ..... BUT  as I studied only 2 months after my 1st read and having these scores .... I will go for it...... I really want higher score but this is how things work in life, u don't always have the time u want.... Sometimes u just have to fight..... I think i did my VERY VERY best.... I look back and I see i used my highest availability, I didn't waste any minute I had, Last 2 months was just CRAZY.... I did not live a normal human life, I was like a robot..... I did nothing to be regret.... I did my very best. So I hope god will see and understand my situation grin and bless me on the real day.....

No matter how the end would be, I know one thing... I really learned a lot! When I start my journey, it seemed like a dream to me, bc my english was so bad, I couldn't even understand what they are writing on forums and I had to use dictionary every time,,,, every time,,,, that was crazy..... It was just 2 years ago, pregnant me, sitting in front of my computer screen and had a dream about giving USMLE  "one" day and barely understood even the meaning of the exam lol 

But here I am, giving the exam n 4 days, this is really happening???? Yes it is.... I will go ahead and give this exam because I have put my every available effort in it, from learning English to learning medicine..... So I am really calm now... panicking will never help as some forum friends told me wink


grinmust be v sleepy or tired when post last one w/ dropping words...thank god u get what I mean ... it suppose to be /thought had type it as ...
"If like to go for it ... like I said b4, calm, but review study wisely & well... plus believe in ur selfnod, but frustration , too much stress ie bad stress is no good wink, yes u still need tiny stress / tiny hyper to make u go through the exm well ."

Harayyyyyyyyyy 235 is great, who knows ... it can easily jump up 240 & more when u r doing it right with right mind winknod

GLnodpl stay review, do not come here unless u need to or miss us till exm done sticking out tongue

On Apr 26, 2013 - 10:09 AM, igot269 responded:
Yes you are right sis wink

How can I drop that BIG word?????? Thank you GOD for everything! Really, giving me this time for studying, giving me this strength to go on & giving me this OPPORTUNITY to sit on my dream exam smiling face 

I am not just typing it, I mean it, I am really, truly thankful for everything GOD gave me! 

And thank you shwe for reminding me wink


FRED 3 block.... I felt it really different from UW or NBME !!!!!  39/46 33/46 (whaaat??????) 40/46 It doesn't predict anything though....

On 2nd block I almost fell asleep bc I am waking up earlier day by day & I was soooo sleepy!!! (I am showing a defense mechanism right lol ) I am bad at morning studying! but half of my exam is in the morning shockedsticking out tongue....... Maybe I will start light running from today (maybe puppy in my ear sticking out tongue), that way I will physically tire myself a little bit so that I can fall asleep, otherwise I am spending so much time in bed to fall asleep, i thought trying Zolpidem, but maybe NOT..... (I have cut my coffee already, should cut my red bull tooooo but I couldn't do it .... sad having only one can before noon though sticking out tongue)


FRED q's are free on but they have only one year's Q. I did 2013 one, if I had time I would do more...

I found it from other forum... There's a lot's of FRED Q's from prior years, if you want to practice free Q's & have time to do so, then this might help smiling face

You don't have to download, u can just copy the link of each year and paste it on searching window wink GL
