NBME 15 correct answers correlation to score

Hi guys! Hope you will can help me! Can anyone explain me how the scoring in the NBME is? Because, when I looked at the correct and incorrect questions i am at 63% of the 200 questions. and it says that i have a score of 280. Please!!! I am so frustrated with the score, because I've been studying a lot and the school is asking for a 450 score to sign me off to take the actual test... I need you guys!!!

I think the correlation is prety simple, just calculate the number of correct awnsers as a percentage of the whole number of questions.
