Kaplan Medical Got 75% in kaplan simulated exam, where do I stand?

I have just completed the kaplan simulated exam 1 that comes with kalpan Qbank and got 75% correct, and I have a similar average on the kaplan Qbank, I haven't done UW or any NBME yet.
I plan to take step 1 exam in about 1.5 months and I am aiming for at least 240, where do I stand right now?
Thank you

You're probably at or around your goal - I took the first simulated test about 2 months before my test and got a 72, then took two NBMEs after that (242 and 238). I then took the second simulated test three days before my Step 1 and got an 80%, and two NBMEs a few weeks before that (242 and 242). I averaged 74 cumulative on qbank, and around 77 if I only counted the last 10 blocks or so.

Because there is little data available on those simulated exams, I can only tell you my own experience so you can correlate with your own, but I haven't even received my score report yet so take this with a grain of salt. My NBMEs showed basically 240-242 with that Qbank performance which is similar to yours. I think I'll get somewhere around 245, but I'll have to wait till Jan (and I may be surprised and not necessarily in a good way).
