Kaplan Medical Took Kaplan full length Assessment Exam today

Guys,

I got 72% on my assessment exam today. It is a full length test. Please tell me what you guys think about the score. Can you give a approx three digit scoring prediction.

I have my exam in 3 weeks.

Please reply.

Thanks

Default bit lenghy

It was bit lenghty.. I took a NBME online & spoted my weak areas. This exactly resembles the Kaplan weak area.

how was this in comparison to an nbme?
is it better to get this since it simulates 7hrs or is it better to just stick with nbmes since they are my consistent with the step?

That's high performance. Congrats! Kaplan teachers often say if you score higher than 65% you are gonna get a very good score in the real exam. I have tried one sim test and felt like it tests a lot of high yield concepts and not a lot of minutiae details like the Qbank. It gave me a precise feedback as well.
What are your online NBME scores and UWSA scores? Please share your plan to improve in the final weeks. My exam is coming soon as well.
Thanks.

Is this the same exam as the one that goes with the kaplan qbank? Because I saw in their website that purchasing the qbank includes 1 diagnostic test and 2 full simulated exams.

I guess what I just want to know is if the diagnostic test and full simulated exams in the kaplan qbank can correlate with the actual step 1 score like the UWSA? Even just roughly?

I'll still take the nbmes and UWSA... But earlier in my prep, I'm planning to rely on the kaplan simulated exams for "guidance" or to see where I stand. Is this a good idea or should I not "trust" it?

i took one of the diagnostic exams and it was kinda easy. i wouldn't say its at the level of nbmes.
only reason i took it (and have another one) is because kaplan gives sending me promo emails in which they are free.

Kaplan recommends that you take the diagnostic test in the beginning of your exam prep. To see where you are and find your weak areas...
You should keep NBME and UWSA to do after Kaplan...
