USMLE World Percentile Updated Today!
by lamode 08-16-2012, 11:45 AM

Has anyone else noticed a significant change in the USMLE World percentiles? I was in the 70th percentile and somehow dropped down to the 55th percentile?

I asked the UW staff, and they told me that they updated the percentile statistics and the median shifted.

Take in consideration, that most of people that have the time, re-do their UW bank, and that increases their percentage, and that goes in the general percentile.
