Listening 222/81, chances left 4 me?

Hey,

I got my score of 222/81 under the new system, i am an IMG I need to know the chances of getting to internal medicine.. university residency or if not a community one....my score during PREP were

UWORLD -75 percent (timed ,unused)100 percent completed
kaplan qbank-70 percent
nbme 7-238
NBME 5-245

I really am disappointing with what I got, I just wanna know if its any good continuing on this journey ,if i get a much better score in CK,wud i still be able to get into internal medicine residency in the US,which ws always my dream,
I was too proud and overconfident who thot had mastered the exam enough to exclude GOD out of the game, just like my name suggest DIABLO 4 the devil , guess i was wrong..

ur score is fair enough for IM , check the last scores for residency on the

NRMB site , u will find that the scores of the ppl who matched in IM were

averaged to ur score , plus my friend got 220 /95 on the previous scoring

system he celebrated like he had never b4 cuz he told me i just need IM

nothing more nothing less , so congratulations on ur score , and be happy

and of course aim to get > 240 in step 2 CK , cuz in the new scoring

system the scores will vary too much bet applicants so i guess u should

aim now to get as high 3 digit score as u can . good luck in ur journey .

Your scores are fine for IM. Don't look at the 2 digit score. You are 222 and that's fine for IM. Now try to improve this in step2 to further increase your chances of matching.

P.S: Just last week this 222 would have been 96/222. So you should be happy

There's no way the mean score is a 81 on a 2 digit (even though its highly irrelevant)
