Question UWSA Score

Hey guys!

I have a question concerning the UWSA. I took the exam 2 weeks ago and had a score of 600/240. I thought it was ok, but when I checked how many question I did wrong per block the score seemed weird to me. I had around 73% per block. How is it possible to have 240 with this kind of percentage? Thanks for your help!!!

I think, or at least from what I've read, UWSA is way harder than NBME but with a wayyy lenient curve. So for most people, it actually over-predicts their score by a few points. Then again, for some people it's spot on. Hopefully it turns out to be a good predictor of your score .
