Hi!

I have a problem... 2 weeks ago I took NBME 13 and I got 220.
Today I took UWSA1 and got 226.

I've heard it overpredicts a lot so I'm actually scared that I'm somewhere in the failing area... :(

Did anyone have the same experience?
I found UWSA1 AWFUL. It killed me. It hit all my weaknesses (such as DNA and RBC).

Don't really know what to think.
The real one on Sept. 30th so hopefully I can get to my 230...

Would appreciate any response. Thanks!

Answer

Everyone says that NBME has a 5 point error but that the question type is more Uworld style, which in some case if its not, you should stick with ambiguous question to be ready for them.

Uworld since long ago, many people say it overestimates your score. And of course don't know if it uses the same algorithm as NBME, which allegedly is the same a the real exam.

So many things to consider.
