Don't ever be fooled by how those correlation tables make you perceive your qbanks scores. For example having redone UW will simply inflate your score, some ppl have 85%+ on their 2nd take, does that mean they all get 270++?


In reality the only thing that can tell you the truth are the NBMEs, and if any of them tell you you're not ready, well you're simply not ready. Definitely aim for at least a passing grade on NBME.

What I suggest to you now is as others have said, do another NBME to make sure you know where you stand. Afterwards, its time to let go of UWORLD for a bit and start really getting a handle on the information contained in First Aid by either doing DIT or USMLE RX or simply reading it while understanding each part. Doing that will most likely give you an increase in your future NBMEs.

Good luck
