Hey everyone, especially moderaters.
I was looking at the exam score experiences, and noticed that it is a mix of scores, experiences, suggestions, etc... Since I've completed my exam, I've spent an inordinate amount of time looking at what other people scored on similar practice material to see where I stand. Furthermore, I have recieved a number of posts from other people who have shared the same neuroses. So in honor of the post-exam neurotics, I am starting a thread/sticky for people to come and compare the scores that they get on various sources to others, as well as a few correlations. If you have an exam score summary, please post it in the format I give below. Also, If you have a correlation you have found useful, feel free to post it as well. Let's try to limit the content of the postings here to scores, so that others may expedite the process of their obsessive score checking. This is not a novel idea, as I recently stumbled on to it on the SDN.

Step 1 score 3/2: 235/95
Q-bankscore/% complete: 71/76
NBME 1/ time b4 exam: 560/6 days
NBME 2/ time b4 exam: 550/3 days
USMLE CD/ time b4 exam: 80%/2 weeks
Kaplan diagnostic: 45%
Kaplan full length:
Any other scores you feel are relevant= source/score
This is my info, and I will post my S1 score when I get it back
Thank you, and if the moderaters feel this is an important thread, please make it a sticky. I firmly believe we will have an overwhelming number of posts.
For people who did not pass s1, or who did not achieve stellar results, I feel that your scores are vital. The reason I say this is that it gives everyone else the opportunity to learn from your experiences, and adjust their studies accordingly.
Peace
lo

Step 1 score: 246/99

Step 1 May 234/95
Qbank 70%
USMLE CD 46/43/44 1 week before
Kap sim 71%
I think USMLE CD is the best predictor. At least to know if you are going to pass or not. I guess if you get >35/50 1 week before you are most likely going to pass.

Hey all
I borrowed this correlation from ahdy's diary. Since, no real correlation exists, I am posting these scores as past relationships between NBME material and S1.

well guys i didn't pass step 1, but thats also because i ddin't really do a lot of questions, i basically did kaplan video course, and kaplan lectures, also BRS and high yields, and my worse subject was behavioral, and my exam was filled with it, so now i have to really concentrate on that.
Step 1 score = 174/71
Usmle CD = 37, 40, 33
Kaplan qbank = did prob like 40%, just subject wise and averaged in 50s
Didn't do NBME
Hopefully, the second time around, i am planning on going thru the entire qbank with explanations and then taking the kaplan simulated and nbme tests which i didn't do before.

Hi guys here is my figures:
estudied for 7 months
step 1 may 31st : 217/88
Q Bank kaplan didn't have time and just answered about 1400 q just once: 71% 50 Q'sblock all randomly)
USMLE CD: from 39 to 44
I used mostly BRS books and HY series.

I think I should have used Goljan and NBME Q's to get a better score. I recomend you to get Q bank for 3 months it is really useful. I couldn't get it the las 2 months, hope this can be useful to you.
