A score of more than 60 % in UW is a good sign for getting a score of 90+ in the real exam.

In case of myself, I was scoring 68% in UW and got 95 in the real exam.

what about Kaplan Q bank?

I scored average 60% on UW but I exhausted all the questions then spent 4 days reading Goljan extensively n now my Kaplan score is 67%. is Kaplan easier? what should my score on Kaplan be?

n zumzum did not reply to this, but he said refer to FA while doing the questions (if needed). but if we refer than the score isn't our score rite? I know NBME is the best test, but am saving that for next week. as of now, is it OK to refer to FA when we need it n what should my Kaplan score be?

thank u so much in advance.

well referring to FA means....when u r reading explanation..not while u r doing Qs....there is no meaning of test, if u r referring FA every time u don't know the ans....or find Qs difficult...

A lot of people say either UW or Kaplan above 65 is usually safely in the 90s maybe even high 90s depending on your luck on exam day. However, the big caveat is that it has to be random timed blocks and not 5 questions here and there right after reading that topic.

Check out this thread:

You'll notice that people who scored 61-64% in UW got 95 in the Step 1 exam, while those who scored over 65% got 99.

According to this score correlator http://usmle-score-correlation.blogspot.com/
your 2 digit score is 99 and 3 digit score is 238.

Next week's NBME will make it even more clear, do post your score correlates from that test to verify how good the score correlator is.
