Default Step 1 score 246/86

I am with same confusion...

How a 246 Triple digit score corresponds to 86 double digit score.
Is this score really good enough.
Is it due to changed scoring pattern or anything else ?

Hey 313m,

First, congratz.. they changed score since 1st Oct. You can't compare two digits score with the previous takers..

I need your experience to assure me.. Did you do NBME? is it the accurate predictor?

my exam at 24th this month..

please help

Thanks

Default only 3 digit scores imp, no more 2 digit..

with all the info that i have amassed from friends etc about the scores, anything above 230 is good so drgokult your score is superb!! you have every reason to celebrate .. and 313m your score is also good cos i heard that in interviews they are looking for a minimum of 220 in step1 before considering the application so there you go ..
