Default New kaplan diagnostic test

Hi all
i have just taken the kaplan diagnostic test(comprises of 3 hours with 3 blocks of 50 question each)

I have got the over all average of 60 % in whole test..

I did it a month ago... I got 68% in it... i agree with you, its really tough. It's only meant to show you your week areas. The questions are not really step 1 type of questions. If you do an nbme you will see the difference between the actual board style questions and kaplan diagnostic questions. The diagnostic questions of kaplan try to trick you and do not really assess if you can apply the knowledge. Just what i felt. I dont know if others would agree with me or not.

Hi, when is your exam? when i got my score 61% (just in the beginning of my studies 3-4 months before the actual exam that was this July) i think it was correlated to something between passing and average score so lets say 200 - i eventually scored more then 50 points above that so you can see that there is no point in correlating it that early in the studies.
It's really there to show you what are you weak spots, do NBMEs just before the exam to get good prediction.

Good luck
