It hardly correlate with main exam. I think doing a couple more NBME is better than it.
Future belongs to those, who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

I think that trend might be changing. Can't be sure about it but I took UWSA1 3 weeks ago. NBME 13 a week after that and the score wsa UWSA -10 points.
NBME 15 yesterday and that score was UWSA1 -7 points.

I think it's a poor predictor of low range and ultra high range scores. So when UWSA1 says 265. Don't take it's word for it or if it says 235.

Any other mid range score is a valid prediction. If you're scoring 235-260ish in UWSA 1. You can take that score +/- 10 .

Will know more once I take the exam though.
