Kaplan Medical Kaplan QBank %

Hey guys, I am scoring 55% average (40% completed) on Kaplan QBank (random, timed, unused mode). Is it a good score?? Where do I stand?? I am aiming for 99 score. My exam is in June. Did not do UW yet. Planning to give an NBME after Kaplan QBank, and then start with UW. Am I on the right track??
All suggestions appreciated.

I believe there is a score estimator comes with your Qbank subscription. You can check your equivalent 3 digits score with that tool. In general, you have to score 60% on Kaplan Qbank to pass the exam. You still have lots of time to improve your score. Good luck....we're all gonna ace this exam !!!

Ya, there comes a score estimator along with kaplan. But how accurate is it? For 55%, its estimated score is around 219. Thats way above passing. and for 60%, it says 227. so I'm confused what to believe

Oh really ??? Sorry if the info I gave you is not accurate. When I used that qbank, I never really check the percentage to pass the exam. I didn't finish the Qbank at that time, I finished around 40% only and averaging 72% then I switch to UW. I heard my friend said that you need to score 60% to pass the exam.

Regarding how accurate it is, Kaplan claims it to be +/- 16 of your predicted 3 digits score....we need more people to report their step 1 score in this forum to validate this....
