I think it's hard to say, I think your best predictor will be NBMEs, my first UWSA was 242 and I got 238 on the actual test but I took UWSA 1 months before the test so it was probably inflated. And the UWSA 2 that I took a week before my test was 242 also, so I would say it's best to use NBME for true assessments and UWSA for studying. Off note: my last NBME was 236 so pretty close to my actual score.

I took NBME 15 6 weeks before my test and scored 226, then I took NBME 13 4 weeks before the test and scored 234 (sorry I said 236 before, I got confused), anyways my advice is to take NBME as soon as you can and take the most you can, always online, cuz there is no real value in taking them offline. I took UWSA 2 one week before my test, and I always recommend not taking any predictive test past 1 week before since it can be anxiety provoking. An NBME 2 weeks before is also a great idea. That was my original plan but due to weather conditions I had to change my test date. Anyways hope this helps.

Also, don't take the test until you score what you want on the predictives, Hoping you'll increase your score is not the best way to go, It's better to stick with what's more probable. So if you want 250 take it when you score 250 on NBMEs, if you want 240 take it when you score 240 on NBMEs, and so on.

I took my exam on 2015, and there wasn't NBME 18 at that time :/.
The latest was 16 but I chicken out and did not take it because of the bad rep it had.

Well i really want to go into surgery but i took nbme 15 a few weeks ago and got a 250. To me uwsa 1 was way to molecular testing, which I really knew nothing about until yesterday. I'm taking uwsa 2 today, let's see how it goes. The thing is that I don't think I can postpone my test. My school is pushing deadlines...

250 is a great score! I think you can be confident taking your exam. Best of luck.

Thank you very much! Ill let you know how it goes on uwsa 2!

I forgot, I also took nbme 18 like three months ago and got 204. That was without studiying and because i had to take it to get my school approval. Dhould i take it again? I havent corrected it.

I wouldn't take a NBME again even if I had not looked for the answers. I understand you cuz this crossed my mind at some point too, but I think it's best to take a different one. Although you don't know the answers you still have an edge because you've seen the questions vs a freshly new NBME.
And I think that 204 doesn't represent your score at all as it was months ago so don't worry.

I got 228 AGAIN today on the uwsa 2. I don't know how to interpret this things. Fml! I'm also an Img. I think I'm supposed to score higher than the average to get a good residency, but in reality coming from my school, I think I am above average. In reality, I really dont care about my school standing. I just want to get a real chance at beating this thing!

Thanks
