It doesn't work that way i'm afraid. While no one really knows how the NBMEs are scored, odds are its like the real exam. Meaning that its not based on how many you get right alone but which questions you get right. Some questions have more points than others. Plus its scored on a curve.

I'd take any offline scoring with a pinch of salt. You really out to buy the NBMEs and take them.

you can't go cheap when your entire medical career depends on earning a good grade in these exams, so buy the online version and get a real assessment of where you stand

I found it. The offline score is more over similar to this formula:

1.5 x (%/100) x 184 = Offline score. quite close that but ofcourse not accurate. However you can give form 3 offline cuz nobody gives that. Online ones definitely would be form 4 and 6 which give you a better prediction of your test score.
