UWSA is more accurate in step 2 more than NBME , but to be in safe side , i think you should take NBME 4 and compare .. i think you will do great , since your score in UWSA was high

hi
from what I saw in this forum and real life that
previously uwsa is more accurate but in last 2 month this not the case it become over estimate as they say it + or - 20 so so if I in your situation I will take the worst which is 225
NBME for step 2 always underestimate you score by at least 11 so your score probably 222
keep in your mind
1 both are yet decent score unless you want more
2 the real exam always different
3 your uw score is high reassurance
4 from your post history I saw you are recent step 1 taker and that high favorable and good for the exam because they did ask step 1 Q
5 100 % if I in your position i WILL TAKE THE NBME 4 to become more reliable about my score before go to the exam
6 good luck
