Question Step 1 in a week

Hi

NBME 12 - 212 (a week back)
UWSA1 = 252 (2 days back)
UWSA2 = 236 (2 days back)
NBME 7 - going to do it tommorrow

There is such a big variation in my score. The real thing is next Wednesday. What do u guyz think about my score?

nbme is a good estimator,,,,UWSA over predicts,,,so see your score in nbme 7 . .and then decide
to me nbme 7 has bestest correlation with your final score,,

i havent done any step yet but seniors told me this. . .
