according to feedback from people who have taken the exam, UWSA seems closest predictor to the real score.
NBME's are all pretty outdated for prognostic purposes.

if yu are going for both nbme4 & uwsa, i would suggest to take nbme 4 first and then uwsa. What i feel is uwsa prediction is generally some points greater than nbme 4, therefor it's better psychologically to take the last test which predicts higher score than the other. In other words, though 230 of nbme 4 and 240 of uwsa mean the same, one would like to go with 240..
