224 is not a bad score since you got 226 on nbme 7. What were your other nbme scores?

NBME 7 is usually +-/4 and has the best predictive value.

yeah thats true ,its represents my nbme score fairly. i did 12 and that too offline got around 28 wrongs (according to me ) ,so NBME 7 is all i have for comparison. still i was hoping and expecting a score in the lower 230s ,i dont know why. so its a little dissapointing.

does anyone know whats the average score for non-us IMGS- (if there is such a thing like that).i really want to know where i fall.

warfarin -are you done with step 1?

From most programmes in internal medicine I have checked for about a month ago say their applicants average score is 220. Only one program I saw said for IMG u shd hv minimum of 240 be4 u apply to them.
So in conclusion 224 is fairly good and still competitive for im but I guess psychiatry is less competitive than im.
Good luck my friend don't be disappointed. Score higher in ck.
