Angry NBME score doesn't correlate :(

Hey guys, I read this forum quite often and it has helped me a lot. I did NBME 7 along with UWSA 2 and my scores don't correlate.. I got a 220 on nbme 7 and on uwsa 2 I got a 254 Last week on uwsa 1 I got a 256 and my uworld avg was a 73 %. My exam is in a week and I'm thinking of taking usmle sample questions tday and NBME 6 tomorrow, what do u suggest?

Did you take NBME 7 online?
Where you nervous or had any factors that affected your performance?
You say you did it along with UWSA 2, did you do NBME 7 first or last?

They definitively do not correlate. Anyway, NBME 6-7 have the strongest correlation, so try doing NBME 6 and see what you get. You have a very good UW average, and if you did it, random, timed, non-subject wise, it is also a good predictor of your performance on the real thing.

Good luck.

I took nbme first and then uwsa and I read the questions pretty fast, worrying about time management and I made silly mistakes.. But yea all the uworld were timed and random... I guess I'll just have to keep studying for this week..
