USMLE Scores About UW score and Step 1 score as predictors of ck score

Hi guys! Yesterday I finished 50% of UW. Mean score is 70%
What u think is it good or bad or just ok?)

Aim for 250+

exam date: december 24 2013

I read MTB2 and 3. step 1 exam score is 244. (thats why I think I can score 250+ on ck)

Does UW score predict anything?

I definitely will take UWSA and all NBME. As I know that NBME is best predictor.

Thanks in advance

NBME, UWSA, Qbanks Averages, Correlation with Real Step 2 CK Exam Score
Go through this thread. I am in same situation cumulative 70, done with 45% UW.
This doesn't guarantee anything but generally above 70 is normal. I.e. If you work hard and reinforce all the study all the time you probably should be good for > 230. ( with UW 70% ) but you can even hit +260 as from these people's experience if you have >75-77. Also from experiences if you got uwsa around 230 u may get scores 10-15 points lower. So this is just a very random talk. Try to keep and improve your uw. Generally it seems uwsa is the best predictor.
I plan to do nbme after finishing uw and one good revision, to see where i stand.
