Unhappy UWorld Predicted 230

Hi friends!!!

I am appearing for step 3 in 10 days. I took Uworld simulated exam today and I scored 231. I feel very discouraged because of this low score and also because I felt the questions were difficult for me. Is this common for people who take step 3 before residency, or is it just me?
What score on step 3 is considered decent? Based on my performance in Uworld test, what should I expect about how I ll do in the real exam???

Any score above 220 in Step 3 exam is considered very good.

230 based on only questions is really good. Do remember that CCS is the key to getting a good score in Step 3. Ace that and you will do really well.

Good Luck!
