USMLE Scores What will be my score?

I have been a silent follower of this forum and the posts here have been helpful through out my preparation.I have a question.

How many mistakes are OK to get a score above 250. I have taken my exam on May 13 and I felt pretty OK after the exam. But as I was thinking of the questions on the exam and checking them back, I realized I made around 10-15 mistakes by now. I don't know if that is a common feeling for every one. I am feeling pretty awful.

My scores in NBME and UWSA before the exam were;

NBME 7: 530/228 15 days before exam

NBME 6: 540/231 6 days before exam

UWSA2; 256/700 3 days before exam

UWSA1: 247/640 2 days before exam

Free 150 :123/143(86%) 2 days before

Which of the above would you think would be the greatest predictor for me? Where would u think my scores would fall? Becoz each of the above is showing different predictions and which one to believe? I am feeling pretty tensed.
Please reply.

Thanks in advance.

The feeling that you have post-exam is completely normal and all of us went through this difficult time.

There isn't a set number of questions to get correct that we know that can tell us what will be your score.
For more information about that read this How USMLE Scores are calculated?

From all of the assessment tests that you have taken NBME is the best predictor. Your score should fall between 225 and 235.

Wishing you good luck.

10-15? that's lucky! I felt like i answered half of the questions wrong!
seriously, your NBME is the most accurate predictor, you had two exams which means you have higher level of accuracy , so you are most likely to score higher than 230

just try to think of anything else .. don't try to remember how you answered .. try to relax and don't think about the result tell the big day ... if you are up to CK start studying .. this could distract you!

best of luck
