Listening Low NBME scores and high UWSA scores!

Hi everybody!!!

I have some serious issues going on regarding my step 1 exam I did DIT 2010 twice, read FA 3 times and I've done NBME 5,6,7,11,12 with an average score of 420.

I also took UWSA1 with a score of 470 and UWSA 2 with an score of 560. I did uw qbank with an average of 62% and know I'm finishing Kaplan qbank with a score of 72.

My exam is next month and I feel I'm ready for it but the thing is worrying me the most is that I havent done well in all those nbmes... what should I do? do u think nbmes are that predictive? and any idea why the difference between UWSA and NBMEs?

72 in Kaplan Qbank means you'll get around 230 in the exam. It looks like you have improved after you have done the NBME.

Go and do NBME 3 and 4 and see what do they predict, do them after you finish Kaplan Qbank.
