USMLE Scores UWorld and NBME Correlation

I think on the real deal, it's straight

(Number of correct answers) - (experimental questions) = 3 digit score

-----------------------------------------------------------------

But on the NBME forms for offline scoring. This would NBME 15 level. So small percentile multiplier on easier forms to get a better predictor.

I'm curious if anyone has posed Uworld 3-digit and percentage correct to see if they weight their scores and how they correlate to NBME.
