Is 619 really a big gap from passing? I know there are 45 points but i can't decide wether or not it's a huge difference?
Work on your MBE more than anything. If you can get a 50 essay average (yours is 45) and a solid MBE score (140+), you'll pass. 121 is pretty low in terms of the scale, I got a 124 my first time in February when I failed and had a 49 essay average (636 total, failed by 29 points). The Seperac analysis I got told me if I had gotten a 55 average on the essays w/ my MBE score I would have passed, vice versa w/ my essay average I needed (I think) close to a 140 scaled MBE score to pass. Getting your MBE up to the 140 range will make it a pretty solid chance that you'll pass. Also work on your MPT, that's basically free points if you can get the format/time management part down.
SEND IN YOUR SCORES TO SEPERAC, he gives you an awesome detailed breakdown of your score and where you went wrong. It'll take him a month or 2 most likely but it's invaluable insight to why you failed (he'll tell you essay by essay where you ranked in %'s with other people who sent him scores)

MBE: 125.9 (killer)
Gonna hit the MBE hard this time around, starting tomorrow. See everyone else in my boat in Feb!
Yup, get your MBE up and you'll pass easily. I spent a majority of my time studying by just doing practice MBE questions all summer long and got my MBE scaled from a 124 to a 135 which isn't a huge bump but was just enough to get me over the hump (I had pretty similar essay scores to you)
