Question What is the range of prediction for the NBME forms?

I recently took my first UWSA, and I didn't realize their exams only projected as high as 265. My personal goal for step 1 is admittedly unrealistic, but still higher than what is apparently the cap for the UWSA data (despite the fact that I definitely got questions wrong on the test). Do you guys know if the NBME exams have the same cutoff?

Thanks as always,
Tig

I believe it goes up to 292 if you score a 800 on NBME

The UWSA scores are not very predictive of the real test though. Most people score 10-15+ points higher on the UWSA than on NBME's. A friend of mine was scoring around 240 on NBME's and he got 260+ on the UWSA. (He is still waiting on his results)

I would try out an NBME to get a more realistic estimate of your score.
