Thumbs Down NBME Step 3 Assessment Does not Predict Step 3 Score?

I was looking at the self assessment by NBME (the CCMSA). Apparently, you don't receive an approximate USMLE step 3 score?!!!!
Is this true? or there's a way to receive the approximate score?

Yes, that's true. You don't get an approximate USMLE Step 3 score. You get an NBME score which I think is from 200 to 800. The only way to approximate anything from that is to use some of the tables online but I don't know how accurate it would be.

I read more about it..
Apparently you can't get an estimated score because you don't do the CCS part, because there isn't a test for it by nbme
