Question Very weird NBME 6 score....

Hello guys,
I did the extended NBME 6 last week and I got 490/220. But the weird thing is that I only got 106/200 and it gives this 220 score.
I actually counted all the wrong questions. I guess I must have answered the difficult questions and missed the easy ones. Guys this proves why the scoring system of this exam is so unpredictable.
You can still get great score by just answering the hard questions. Well I still need to get the easy questions in order for me to get my dream score which is 230+.
May be we wish for a difficult exam so that we can collect more points.

That is so crazy! I did NBME 6 today and got 370/191, but my raw score was 139/200! I guess I answered the easy questions and missed the hard ones
