Default 65%

I would say 65% will put you in safe place, double check it with Kaplan score estimator ...It comes with your Qbank subscription....

What I was trying to say that it's very likely that you will get 95 on real exam if you can maintain your Kaplan Qbank score above 65. I have friend who scored 60% on Qbank and got 225/95 in real exam. Have you done NBME ? probably it will give better prediction...just to confirm your Kaplan score estimation

for score estimation, i think kaplan is the worse.. NBME is the best score estimator followed by UW. Try to use kaplan to study, it's explanations and cross-references to first aid are good, but if you insist on using it for score estimation i would say 60 to 65 means above 95. I my self used to have an average of 62 on kaplan, 65 on UW, 225 on nbme followed by 99-236 on step 1
