  You are very unlikely to fail.Your score will prolly be an average of your mock tests.Almost everyone who takes CK feels exactly as u did or worse.Personally, I ran out of time and all blocks but 3.NEVER went back to recheck my marked questions which were over half per block. On two blocks randomly picked the option on about 3 questions/block as i had run out of time. It was so bad that i didnt speak to anyone for 2 days after that exam. Guess what? I had 250+.You will be fine.

  Although your NBME scores don't necessarily predict your real score, yours look pretty good, especially your last one. If you feel you managed time okay on the test, you probably did better than you think. I thought I failed my exam too and I passed comfortably. It was a hard 4 weeks though. Good luck!
