USMLEWorld UWorld Score correlation?

Anyone know how accurately UWorld percentage scores translate into a three digit score?

Yes, I know about NBMEs...I'm doing them as well.

Well after taking a NBME, they'll give you a raw score and a chart to convert it into an approximate three digit score. I can't give you an opinion on how accurate that is since I've yet to take CK. But I have heard it's pretty close from most people, I'd say +/-8 just to give you an estimate. As far as how many you need to get right, everyone can take a guess and say 60-70%, but no one really knows for sure since the whole scoring process is behind closed doors.
