Default People who got 250s

To all people who got 250s. Do you feel you had more than 40-50 mistakes in the exam in retrospect?
Did any of you mark 15 questions per block at times?
I think I have around 50-60 mistakes (including 7-8 stupid ones). My NBMEs were around late 240s early 250s. UWSAs were both 265+.
Is it possible to get a 250 with 60 mistakes in your opinion?
I know there is no definite answer but I need some kind of solace.
Thank you

sixty mistakes is a lot... adding to that questions answered incorrectly due to lack of knowledge, and that makes for a whole lot of wrong answers.

but dont worry, i cant imagine anyone making nearly that many mistakes on one exam. with those NBME and uwsa scores, you probably did very well.
