Help Delay in score… need help

Hello,
I took my exam on May 17th and still waiting for my score, I been told by friend that score for one who took after May 10th will be out on July 11th. Is it true? Any one knows something about it?

What does it mean (necessary modifications to the test item pool). My exam was way more difficult than UW. I felt each block had 20 to 30 experimental Qs
Thanks

unfortunately after this may 10th many of the exams was found to be very hard.

It is geared to be more like NBME 15.

We will have to wait to see your score.

if you have done any NBME post your marks so we can predict it

Thanks Shima,
Unfortunately I didn’t do NBME in UW my average score were 82% I understand it may not be predictable. I have one more Q ill appreciate if you answer, if out of 336 Qs for instance I had 100+ experimental Qs how will it impact on my score.
In my exam many Qs were straight forward like I was 100% confident that my answer is the right answer but so many Qs were like going above my head… is it possible that because of recent changes I got too many experimental Qs.

yes , for instance if you had 100 experimental questions, your mark would go on the curve to make it out of 236 and than out of 276.
