No clue if it's happening on a large scale but I dropped 20 points from NBME on the real deal.

well that is whats bothersome and thats why im tensed because all me fellows had awsome preps and they had been preparing day and night for almost 8 9 months their uworld scores were good theri nbme scores were good but still they couldn't cross the 240 mark and thats why im a little worried about my own exams since all the instruments that can help you measure your score are lagging and overestimating!!!!

I took my results yesterday and it was 15 points Lower than my nbme scores. My Real exam wasnt bad and I was expecting better score. I really wonder if there is a tendency to decrease in usmle step 1 score?
