Unhappy Shocked after finishing NBME-4

I just finished NBME 4 yesterday and got 280( 191) after that I am really shocked. I did total 55 mistakes, and over all 70% questions correct. I was about to schedule my exam on 4th Sept. my average in UW is 66% with random time mood. I am lost ,I do not what to do. People are scoring 70% on UWSA and getting 230+, why NBME so ??

I do not know may be I was fasting the whole day and after that I started NBME, I did 37mistakes in first 2 blocks and 18 mistakes in last 2 blocks. I think I could have have perform much better, But still why after getting 70% answers correct just 191. I mean WTH man.
what kind of scale is it ?? Hell frustrated and feeling much down......
My target for CK is 240+. If anyone wants to revise NBME-4 please inbox me.
Waiting for your input and support. Thanks in advance.

If you miss 55 questions, that puts you at 68%.

Nbme has a very steep curve. Uwsa is more predictive though. So cheer up and try either another nbme or uwsa

Thanks man, I did correct 129/184. Well I am feeling very low after NBME . But I will try to work hard and do another assessment in 3 weeks.
I am actually confused in which topics I should focus more, according to NBME my graph is low in almost all areas, but in UW I am doing much better..

For step2ck I found that the NBME underpredicts quite alot. UWSA for me was much more accurate (within 1 point). However having said that your score in your NBME doesnt quite correlate with your uWorld score. I would suggest wait 10 days till Ramazan is over and do NBME 1 or 2 or the newer 6 after revising in between.

I was studying for Step1 in last Ramazan my NBMEs while fasting were quite different from the others. Cheer up, you will be fine inshAllah!
