Although this is a very good score, If I were you I would do NBME to be surer and in a safer place.

Thank You both for replying. I've heard that UW is inferior to NBME at predicting the real score. Wonder if it overpredicts or underpredicts. Either way the good thing about UW sim is that you can review the questions, but i think you have to do it within 20 days of starting the simulation.

It's even better when you take both NBME and UWSA and average out both predictions. This will be your best estimate

Thanks so much for the encouragement guys.

@Seetal I registered but haven't scheduled a date yet. My eligibility period is until the end of June, I've been studying since November.

I registered early just in case anything would go wrong i would have enough time to handle the problem. So I would recommend you register early as well.

Thank you that's a nice table. But it does not mention the UWSA correlation only the mainstream UW, please add another column for UWSA score correlation.
