Listening UWSA vs NBME score...

Hi dear friends,

I'm getting ready for taking step 2 CK in less than one month
beside being confused about all subjects right now , I have some difficulties interpreting my UWSA and NMBE score. And because I've always found this forum so helpful I want to share my scores and ask for your dear friends opinion.

I took NBME2 ten days ago and I got 510/232 and today UWSA 710/258.
1. Does UWSA greatly overstimate the score or NBME underestimate it (compare to real exam)?
2. I am done with 85% of UW qbank, my overall is 75% and percentile 91st. what does this 91% mean?


thanks and good luck everybody

UWSA forms usually overestimates your score.

I have to disagree with Sabio. UWSA is more accurate than the nbmes for CK.
