This is a very tricky question

- people may score high in uworld and low on NBMEs. In such cases, NBMEs tend to be right.
- on the other hand, if you must, ~ 48%, ~58% and ~68% might probably correlate with score 200, 220, 240 respectively. UW must be done timed, random, first pass. Otherwise, your UW percentage will be probably biased.

Seriously, use NBME.

uw scores might give you an idea about where you stand, but they are definitely not the gold standard in measuring your level.
a person with 40% in uw but who made use of every word and explanation and took extensive notes, may do better in the actual exam than a person who got 70% and took a false sense of confidence which led him to not care much about the explanations.

conclusion: do an nbme after finishing uw, it's a much better assessment tool
