I don't think anyone knows exactly what percentage because there's a lot of factors at work. Some of the data I've seen suggests around 88% but that is an assumption, so don't quote me on that.

Wait, so... Do you mean that the STEP1 doesnt correlate directly with the number of correct questions? I thought 100% correct was 322. What other factors are at work?

I do know that NBME score prediction requires higher % of correct. For example, 80% something correlates to 228 predicted, according to the NBME tables when taken online.

Nevermind. I just read about it. But it is difficult to know how it correlates exactly, they use some unknown algorithm like the NBME.
