USMLE Scores Offline NBME Score Prediction Formula

Hi guys!

I just finished NBME 7 offline and I had 23 wrong questions/177 correct. I know there was a formula from which one can approximate their score. Can someone please tell me that formula? And one more thing...for me, NBME 7 seemed a lot easier than UWSA 2. What do you guys think? Maybe it's because I studied more in the meanwhile, but the questions seemed a lot more straightforward.

Anyways, I still have 3 weeks till the exam, finished only 4 and half days of DIT and plan to do it all (I just love DIT, except the stakeholders and principles of life ha ha ha) and plan to take another NBME next Saturday!

thanks i'm hoping the same and also same with you too....
my exam....hmm it's complicated.....finally extended my eligibility today due to short of prometric,will give it in 3-4 wks at any peaks i guess....
actually haven't given any tests since i started dit.....so should see if i have any improvement thereafter it's completion...

and to say...i dont think that 1.4 formula does work.....when i did online nbme 11 it perfectly worked when i correlated...
but the other day i saw a post in this forum that...129 correct and getting 238...i thought it's unbelievable,may be time factor and no. of answeing tough questions too work ...

That was actually me who started that thread...And I wouldn't have believed it too,if I had not seen my friend's extended feedback myself.He had only 129 correct and his score on NBME 7 was 238.I wish I had taken a snapshot of it for this forum.

So what was your score on NBME 11?
