Default Score prediction controversies!! what exactly is it?

Hi Guys
Good Luck for your upcoming exam step1/2 CK

Someone ,Can you please enlighten me about prediction! USWA overpredics the score and NBME undermines the efficiency!

There are 322 question in step 1 with some markless/dummy questions, must have more than 60% correct answer to pass...... roughly correlates 192 excluding dummy questions .

If someone score 35+ in Each block(46 questions block).......the predicted score for NBME 210 and for USWA 244......mathematical prediction/calculation 239(...considering some dummy questions).

What exactly is it in real exam?

*Is it based on number or proportion of incorrect answers?
* Is it based on number or proportion of total correct answers?

My USWA 1,2 and NBME 7,13,15 score varies from 223 lowest to 241 highest.
