The formular varies from number of correct answers times 1.38-1.4.
Some nbmes are very stingy with scores and the more recent ones u are save to multiply by 1.4. But better to go the hard way with 1.38.

So if u get 175 questions correct then 3 digit score is 175*1.38= 242
Or 175*1.4=245 very accurate guys.
But I would advice u to do them online if u hv the money.

Qbanks are never used for assessment please so don't even ask that. If u want assessment please use nbme. What I said applies to only nbme scoring.
Good luck.

I was pretty confused about Goljan and pathoma as well. After a lot of research, I figured I'd do pathoma perfectly well and use goljan as reference and especially do all of the little tips in goljan given on the sides of the pages. I see your number starts with a +92. We're from the same country. All the best.
