Question Uworld Score vs NBME prediction

Just wondering how its measuring for everyone else.
Also if anyone did Kaplan Qbank. State that percentage as well.

Kaplan Qbank: 72% (98% Completed)
UW cumulative Score: 74% (86% completed so far)
NBME 11: 228 (2 Months back)
NBME 12: 226 (2 weeks back)

NBME's have a horrible curve. Not sure what happened with NBME 12. Planning to take NBME 13 in a week and a half. Let's hope that turns out better else delaying the exam.

Ur results are weird in correlation my friend. Something strange definitely went wrong on the nbme. Or have u done uworld and Kaplan already and u doing them again or did you do them offline?
If those percentages are real first time online values then nbme shd be giving u minimum 240+

Yup Random, Timed, First Pass. I guess the scores aren't correlating because well after going through uworld I fell for some easy questions on the NBME trying to overthink them. I was like it can't be this. It's too simple.
UWorld gave me the knowledge but screwed up my nbme. Another possibility is that I think I took NBME 12 too lightly as my first nbme after a single kaplan read was 228 and I was overwhelmed so I didn't review FA before taking it. Regardless those are all excuses. I just need to take couple of NBMEs and see how that goes.
