Default New format scoring

New format for step 1 is 308 questions[44 que per block]. So u will get the score out of 308 instead of 322. Is that right

The score you get is not the number of correct answers. It is not known to public how the exam is scored. The only thing your score tells you is what percentile you scored in. As far as I know, scores on the new format (308 questions) will be "equivalent" (I can not find a better word) to the old format (322 questions).

Scores on new and old forms will be comparable; the decrease in the number of items per form will be accounted for in scoring the examination results. Usmle site says this
