Default UWSA 1 score

my exam is this Monday.
I took UWSA 1 today and found it most questions are difficult for me. and I got 30 question wrong in the end. I was very shocked and disappointed and those were 46q not even 50 like in NBME.
I got less wrong q than that in my NBMEs.
But surprisingly my score they showed is 264.
Couldn't believe it. I'm thinking something might be wrong with the score report. Cuz my internet connection went crazy while doing that for a min.
If you guys took that test already, please can you relate that to your score and tell me if that is possible or not??
I just want to know if mine is defective. 30 wrong question for 264 is unbelievable to me.
cuz in NBME if I got 30 wrong that would be around 230.
Pls understand my worry cuz I have exam on Monday and I'm freaking out after taking this test.......
Thank you in advance...

There is nothing wrong. It is widely known that UWSA overestimates your score. I got 50 questions wrong and they gave me 245. Just took NBME 15 and got 24 wrong, the score was 245 as well. USWA questions were much harder though (at least IMO).
