Idea! Nbme score and no of wrong questions correlate

HEllo all, I saw something similar to this in another forum.

This is how it goes you write down your nbme scores and write down the number of wrong questions beside it.

Example:
NBME 15 : 233/ 24 wrong.

Note . this will only matter or count if you did it online with extended feedback. Yes I also know that the questions are weighted but this might just give one a hint of the MAXIMUM/ LEAST number of questions to get wrong if one is to get a particular score.

Smile NBME score correlation tables

I guess the following attachment may help...
it gives correlations between NBME scores, %age of correct answers and USMLE scores. One can neglect the 2-digit score mentioned in the table as it is no more used in reporting...

Default NBME scoring controversy

Hi friend
Yesterday I did USMLE world self assessment second I scored 33,32,34,35 in each block(46) respectively. My projected score was 247.

But I again did NBME 7 ,I found Questions easier than USMLE world and have done better than the U world 2 self assessment ..but predicted score in 220
NBME don't provide how I did in each block and right & wrong question and percentage correct.

How NBME is good predictor?

uwsa tend to overshoot your actual score where as nbmes are more accurate.

if buy nbme with extended feedback you can see the questions your got wrong and from what section.

good luck!

In the real thing, in order to get a 240ish score, you can't miss any more than 6 questions on each block?

That was my question as well. That seems pretty brutal.
