My UWSA's overpredicted my score a bit but NBME's were more accurate.

As dazzles said, UWSAs are not that accurate I think. In my case, although UWSA predictions were pretty accurate, this is not the case for many people. Not to mention that the questions in UWSAs seems pretty strange and twisted; just not like the actual Step 1 exam. This does not necessarily mean that your score is entirely invalid; I think it's a very high score and shows excellent potential.

NBME 7 predicted my score with incredible accuracy. I think this is the NBME to take some days before your exam. Forget about all earlier NBMEs. It's worth noting, however, that the interface of NBME is totally different from UW and the real exam, so don't get confused because of this point (and keep a calculator around).
