Unhappy uwsa correlation for ck....

how accurately does uwsa predict our score in step 2 ck??

got this doubt because my uwsa 1 & 2 for step 1 predicted 258 /263

but i got 241 in real exam..........nd this happened wid many of my friends...

so does uwsa for ck over predict our score like the step 1....

plz help.......... thank you

hi
i've also noticed a lot of my friends with very high uwsa.. it over predicts.. but still is a good correlator over all.. you want to do it last minute to boost ur confidence before the real test!! i would say name 4 is a better correlator!
