Formula Using UW% to calculate acutal scores!

Here is a formula that a few people I know found to be a v.good predictor of their step 1 scores....for others it was off by +/- 5-10 points

Notes: This formula is generally used to calculate 3 digit scores...and also use your UW % that u got first time around....

Three Digit Score: (UW % x 2.4) + 84.............

.......... .........

I would say that you should go with UW x 2.0 + 70.

More pessimistic/realistic

Uworld percentages don't mean much realistically, but if they meant something... that formula would be very very far off.

I know a lot of people who scored 230+ and all were scording in the 60's on Uworld. According to your formula they should have gotten 190-200.

Somebody scoring 75% on uworld getting a 220? Yikesss
