Stats So lets say you only get 60% of the questions on the real thing.

You only get about 60% of the questions right.

Is that passing?

Maybe passing, but cutting it close.

I certainly hope its a fail if you get 60%

Let me ask you this... Would you really want to get a 188 on your USMLE???

If you get that score on your exam... Your pretty much screwed to get anything... The only thing you can look forward to is research and maybe possibly family... Even though family medicine's interview cutoff its 192.

Arrow 60-70% to pass the exam

You need to answer 60-70% of the questions to pass the USMLE Exam. The number is not consistent. It's different from each exam session to another.
