  • RJ

    is this for step 1 or step 2?

  • AJ

    Does “NBME Q”=NBME CBSSA? If so, they give a different scale for score conversion

  • erfranke89

    I appreciate this chart, however why are your equivalent scores for the NBME questions so far off from the equivalent score that NBME gives on its score report?

  • anonymous

    @erfranke89 NBME makes sure a score of 500 is equivalent to the current average on the usmle. With that said this chart in my opinion is outdated.

  • jack

    how accurate is this??

  • anon

    for UW QBank %, is it referring to cumulative performance?
