UWSA is usually 10-15 points below NBMEs score. However, there are people who have received the exact score of UWSA on their actual step 1 so its either way. The best predictor of how you will do on exam day is still the NBMEs.

Uworld is probably the best source for step 1 so you have to do this probably twice if you have time. Many people do another Qbank either Kaplan or UsmleRx and it doesn't really matter which one you choose to do because the key is to as many questions as you can. I personally would pick UsmleRx qbank since they go over FA and that will help you memorize it. But if you're doing kaplan notes then do kaplan qbank.

I never used beckers qbank so can't really say anything about that. All the best!!
