Scored 75% in Offline NBME

Hi,
My exam in a week and i am doing the NBME offline version i have done 12 and 11 so far and i get around the 75%..
I have no clue if this good or bad is there any chance anyone would know what does that correlate or how could i correlate percentage with my predictive score.

75% would be around 150 correct out of 200 right ?

Use the formula = 1.4 * score in NBME = correlates to USMLE score

1.4 x 150 = 210

So you're somewhere around 210..but you should do an online NBME.

ya, give an NBME online.you can give the NBME 7 or 13 as you have already given 11 nd 12. see where you stand and then plan accordingly, don't rely on offline forms

You should have taken an online NBME by now.
But with one week left, I'm not even sure doing one now will be beneficial.
Take an online NBME, right now!!

Doing offline NBME is the most common terrible mistake that IMGs are doing.

The offline NBME would never tell you what will be your predicted score (not even close).

NBME offline versus NBME online
