Default nbme 7

I have 2 weeks left to give the exam. Just took nbme 7 online and its freaking me out. These were my scores -

nbme 4- 600 (258) 2 weeks ago
nbme 6- 590 (256) 1 week ago
nbme 7- 460 (229) today

WTH!!

I thought it was pretty tough but a 30 point difference is crazy. I know I have to give UW still but did I mess it up really badly or is form 7 supposed to be insanely hard?

Any suggestions?

Don't let it get you down. Focus on your weakness and do UWSA. YOU GOT THIS!

Hi. Thanks for your post. Yea there seems to be inconsistencies with regard to score co-relation for step 2. My friend scored 230 in form 7 but 254 on the exam (very close to his uwsa score of 252). I am praying for the best.

Is it true that UWSA once you cross 84% gives you 265 ? :/ if that's the case how does it predict ?
Coz if you get 90 % correct or 85% it will show 265
