Unhappy Need some real help here.

Guys, about a month ago I asked for help because my best friend who is also taking the exam with me on January was scoring low. Well right know she is by the 46% of the Kaplan Qbank with a total accumulative of 36%, she is a USA citizen and she is not interested in getting a 99 or so, she just wants to pass the Step 1 Exam. Is she able to pass with these scores, she is also starting with me UW on december 1.
Can someone help me with this.
Does anyone heard about someone with these scores passing the exam??????

No she's not going to pass the exam with such a score.

She should at least cross the 45% score in Kaplan Qbank.

I agree, sorry... I know Kaplan tests a lot of detail but it tests a lot of concepts too - you're looking at about 60% before she's more or less guaranteed a pass.
