Default EXAM IN A WEEK !!!! need guidance

how predictable are uwsa2 scores?
I used to get very low scores in nbme,so i gave uwsa2 to boost up my confidence as i am having exam in a week and suprisingly i scored 250!!!!
i know it exaggerates 20 marks more than actual exam but uwsa2 is very very easy.it is not even comparable to present exam pattern.
My exam is in a week n i cant even postpone it.
what to do? should i give another online nbme or will it decrease my confidence if i score less again in nbme. or is it better to do offline nbme?
p.s: i gave all nbmes till now except 15

do not walk into the exam until you have a 240 +/- 2 points on your nbme.
the match comes every year.
post your nbme scores.

Srag. UWSA 1 and 2 both, are NOT predictive at all. Think of them as bonus questions of Uworld. They have no predictive value what so ever. I got a 260 in both UWSA but score a 240 on the real deal...

Post your NBME scores, that way we'll be able to help better!

Do NOT use offline NBMEs. They are illegal plus they do not predict anything. All those formulas out there are not reliable as your rightly said.

Can you post the score of your most recent nbme that was done online?

If you haven't done... then it's time to give 15!
