The number of questions you get wrong in the NBME Self Assessment Exam does not correlate with the final score and prediction.

This is because they give different weight to different questions. So for example, if you have 50 Qs wrong you might get prediction of 220 but somebody else had different 50 Qs wrong and his prediction might be 210 or 230 or whatever for that matter.

The best way is to do the official online forms and here's the link

Does this hold true for the real exam? Are there weighted question on the real test?

Nobody knows for sure. But experts in the matter always talk about different weight for different questions and also about "experimental" questions that are not weighted at all.

guys the thing is, i failed my step 1 before

i was an idiot, who took uworld very lightly and did kaplan qbank.

i wasnt aware of this forum

and no 1 told me how to study for steps.

this time, i am trying to assure my self im on the right track with doing uworld

i had a good base with kaplan notes and kaplan qbank, but neva knew uworld was the key.

and now when i started doing uw, i felt kaplan lecture notes, have nothing major, just basics, but uworld is the BIGGY.

So does anyone have an estimate about how many questions wrong equals a 214 based on their own experience with NBME 7?

Also, I dont have the Kaplan Qbank, is it necessary? Or is UWORLD enought?
