Question How often do they update NBME questions

I have not done NBME yet, and would like to know how often NBME questions change, once a year?

Every one is referring NBME by blocks, as if the questions are always the same.

Thank you.

Info They are not updated

The NBME Forms are not updated, the same questions and blocks remain the same, however, they come up with new forms every 1-2 years.

The latest NBME Form is Form 7 which was released more than a year ago.

For more information about the NBME Forms read here
About the official NBME Tests & Forms

Nevertheless, the Free 150 questions are updated every year to reflect the current exam style and software. To know more about this please read here

Note that the free 150 is different from NBME forms.
