Default Nbme score puzzle. Who can explain?

Please can someone help explain this.

6/15/14. NBME 15 Total Incorrect= 81, CBSSA Score 250, 3 Digit score=175
8/26/14. NBME 16 Total Incorrect=81, CBSSA Score 280, 3 digit score =181
Why same number of incorrect questions but with different CBSSA Score?

This is what I have done so far.
First Aid-Read 2 times
USMLERX-37%
LISTENING TO USMLERX VIDEO. Getting tired
USMLERX Q-bank 37% completed.
Pathoma Book with Video. 1 time
Uworld. 1 time over 6 months ago.

What can I do to hit 3digit score of 240 in NBME. If I give step 1 exam on October 30, can I get 240 or better.
