USA Failed every nbme... passing uworld in 70s..

I failed every nbme in the 200s. I am being told that nbme's are not very accurate for ck. I am scoring in 70s on uworld. My latest nbme score was nbme 7 with a score of 208. I have not yet taken the uworld assessment, but I am hearing that it is more accurate than the nbmes. I have my exam in a week and have been studying for 2 months now.

Can anyone give me better insight as to whether the nbme's or uworld assessment is more predictive of your real ck score? As in, if I magically score a 240 on uwsa, but never passed an nbme...what does that tell me?

I have gone through that specific forum where everyone lists their nbme averages, but it seems to be people who HAVE passed their nbme's in the 240+ range.
