Default NBME score predictions

Let's talk about this for a while:
each NBME form has 4 exams each of which consists of 50 Qs

here's some predicted correlations
you have to get more then 400 NBME score in order to pass the USMLE which is more than 75/185

if you get 800 then you will get above 99/260 in the real exam

It's a flat curve at the end
so when you get 600 NBME score that will still get 99/240 in USMLE

Another correlation
500 NBME corresponds to more than 82/220 USMLE

Got the idea!

For a complete table of correlation see this post
