Yea the 2 digit passing score is still the same. Only a change in 3 digit passing score from 185-188.
You cant take the exam for 7 years if you pass it. You can take it again after 3 months of failing it!

Neverthless Seethal i think you shouldnt give up ur dream! Take step 2ck and CS. Try to score as much as you can 95+ or somthing, gain some experience in us via observerships alongside research and ul still have a shot!

Dont get too disappointed! Things like these happen in life and you should learn to move on, i know i cant even imagine putting myself in your shoes but may god forbid! If it does everyone has to forget the past and move on!

Congrats for passing it and hope for the best!

The passing score of 75 have never changed throughout history and it will never change.

The 2 digit score is customized by the NBME because it's requested by residency programs as a form of standardized score.

It's always 75 pass and 99 highest score.

It's the three digits (the real score) that really changes year to year and even month to month.
