Is the passing score still 188/75 or is it higher?

Hi guys,

Today I've been reading comments in different forums of people getting much lower 2 digit scores than before. I understand that they have changed the method of converting the 3 digit score to a 2 digit score. Does that also change the passing score from 188/75 to a much higher score or is the passing score still the same?

Thanks.

it is still 188. It is all on the usmle.org website. They only changed the minimum passing score for step 3 so far.
