USMLE Step 2 CK Questions Number Reduced
by Sabio 09-05-2009, 03:25 PM

Today the NBME has released a great news for us. They have reduced the number of questions in USMLE Step 2 CK from 368 to 352 items.

This means that the number of questions per block will be reduced from 46 to 44 questions per block.

This is most probably because they have seen that candidate performance has been largely hindered by the shortage of time specially now that we have long long clinical case scenarios and multimedia questions.

This should make the Step 2 CK taker's job easier than before.

Of note, the NBME also reduced the number of USMLE Step 1 items from 50 to 48 questions per block back in early 2008.
