Default NBMEs vs Uworld

Hey people.

I am curious about your inputs. I feel that the NBMEs 11,12,13 are easier than Uworld. Of course they have some tricky questions, but in general they are less twisted compared to the Uworld questions. Quite often I am stuck between 2-3 answer choices in Uworld, and I don't know what they want, cause all sounds the same.
What do you people think?

Hi, i only did NBME 11 and i thought i was crazy thinking they way you do .
i came to the conclusion that i felt it easier probably cause we have been exposed to the questions withouth knowing.

definitely it was easier that uworld.
