Default Are NBME q s similar to real exam ?

Hi, I just took a NBME 13 and got much less score than I had expected .I understood my first block was really bad, perhaps I was apprehensive but then when I was proceeding to next blocks, I thought most of the q s are not that tough infact some was straight forward .Last block was mixed types.But score came so bad I am really upset.And my headache is about few questions ,topics which have not been discussed anywhere in UW /FA .I really need to know about q s of the real exam .I know NBME grading is most accurate but are NBME q s tougher than real exam or real exam q s standard is exactly same like NBME s .
