150 was the score on NBME, not the 'predicted usmle score'?

depends on if that 150 value you are giving us is the NBME score or the correlated step1 3-digit score.

if its the step1 3-digit score (in which case your NBME score would be about 195) then it is a fail as 188 is a pass on step1.

if it is the nbme score, then your step1 3-digit score is 139. again, which is a fail (188=pass).

so either way, it is a fail.
and seems you have much work to do yet.

how long have you been prep'ing for?

Did you do it offline! I hope you did it offline otherwise its not a good score. Offline NBME cant Predict anything except giving u the number of Correct answers. Every question has a different weightage in STEP1. The best way to actually see where you stand is to do an ONLINE NBME 7 or 11, or 12...

if you answered 150 questions correctly in offline NBME, then I think so stand in 210-220 range on the three digits scale. But if you scored 155 in ONLINE NBME, you need to cover your weaknesses.

Good LUCK

@MedPharm: I think saimakhan went offline while you were getting your list. I found your post really amusing...

@saimakhan: Yep! Don't despair over the results of an offline nbme... Go online.
