USMLEWorld UWSA score

how does UWSA correlates with the performance?
how much 3 digit score is enough to get 99 in real exam?
i got low score in UWSA 2 due to lack of recall and some stupid mistakes.
I took it to get myself focused.
my assessment score is 390 and 3digit score is 190.
i know this is a very bad score.but where i stand?
any input will be appreciated.any tips to improve my score.i have not done first aid well.

you are middle of the way, your score is about USMLE 77%. you need at least 580 NBME/UW score to reach 99% USMLE score.

Hey Harles, did you start out scoring really well on UW, or did you score improve over time? I just started (did 2 blocks) and am only scoring ~65%. My exam is in 1 month, can you please give some suggestions on how to improve? I am currently re-reading FA.

I got 71% on my first block and after 10 blocks, my average score was 79%. It was a little bit up and down in the next 10 blocks, but halfway through the end I improved my score and landed with 81% on average. Don't worry to much about your score, each block in UW has different level of difficulty. Sometimes you can get low score after scoring very well on previous block. Just keep on working on UW and you'll see that you're improving ur score at the end. Good luck

On the safe side, people say that it overestimates by 10 points. So if you got 250, subtract 10 points, then that's your usmle score.

Great score, by the way!

Congrats in advance!

I haven't done nbmes yet, so I can't really say based from experience.

According to a poll here, nbme 7 is the most predictive.
According to feedback, nbme 11 and 12 are tough. They are the ones with long stems.
If you want to read detailed feedback on the three, you can look through nbme threads in this forum. I just usually use the search function.

You're definitely going to ace the exam! If I had your score, I'd probably be running to prometrics right now!

Anyways, good luck! Wish you all the best!
