USMLEWorld UWSA and NBME Form 4 Discrepancy!

I've done NBME Form 4 two weeks ago and today I did UW Self Assessment.
NBME Form 4 predicted 224
UWSA predicted 253!

What's going on, which one should I believe

Thumbs Up Two reasons

There are two reasons for that.

First, UWSA usually overestimates your score by a margin of 10 points and NBME Forum 4 is known to underpredict your score.

Second, your two weeks of reading must have enhanced your preparedness (am sure you are Turbo reading nowadays )

The safest guess is in between so probably your are looking at 235-245 range which definitely means 98-99

Arrow Self Assessments!

I did UWSA and scored 268 & UConsult correlator predicted >270 and i ended up getting 99 / 270. Never did an NBME though but like Sabio said, it probably underestimates your score. After all, they have a reputation to keep

Default Step 2 CK Discrepancy

Advice anyone?

UWSA: 570/233

1 week later: nbme 4: 300/183
after 2 days: nbme 3: 390/204

CK is in 2 weeks. What should I do? I'm in super spaz mode right now considering after the UWSA i was hoping to up my score by another 20 points.

And nbme was pretty accurate for me for step 1.
