USMLE Scores Step 1 pass mark

Hi

I am confused again with passing mark for Step 1. It is 188. Is that mean 188 out of 322 ? To be more clear, have to correct 188 questions out of 322, is it ?

Thanks

No, that's not how the scores are calculated.

188 is approx 78.

Its guestimated that, that's around 70% correct answers
