USMLE Scores USMLE step 1 Scoring System

Hey guys! I am a medical student from India preparing for my usmle step 1. I was wondering if anyone could tell me about how many questions one is supposed to get right on step 1 if he is aiming for a score of 240 or above? I know every questions carries different marks but still if anyone has some rough idea about it, please do reply. I would really appreciate it

There's no official thing about how the exam is scored....but it appears to be a bit complex... Anyway just prepare well and do your best, you won't be sitting in the exam counting how many questions you may get wrong, because trust me sometimes we make mistakes in the easiest of questions

good luck
