Default USWA score accuracy

Hey all

My exam is a little more than 3 weeks away. I did UWSA 1 today and got 670 (252) . It's very close to my UW Qbank average (77%). So is it true this is an OVERestimation ?? cause really I'm aiming for sth really high so I need to know what can I improve...especially that I made some silly mistakes in the assessment....

Will do UWSA 2 and NMBE 7 and 13 during the next weeks... Anything else recommended ?

thnx

Some have said it over predicts by 15-20 points... i dont know how accurate are those statements... but seems like you're in a safe position. Review your weak areas (according to the assessment) a bit harder and give a NBME when you feel like and see where you stand.

UWSA is a very good predictor just before ur exam , i got 245 on my UWSA 2 , and i ended up w 240 on my real exam. I dont believe the +/- 15-20 over- or underprediction. Good luck friend
