WOW, congrats! What do you think helped make that huge jump between 6 and 4 weeks and 2 weeks and 4 days? If you've made enough posts, would you mind sending me a pm please? I'm currently scheduled for 5/23 and would love any tips. My realistic goal is 230-235; but I still have a way to go.

Default Deep breaths

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to post a message for anyone who's reading these score threads and freaking out, like I was a few weeks ago. My scores:

NBME test at school, 6 weeks prior: 190
UWSA1, 4 weeks prior: 224
UWSA2, 1.5 weeks prior: 236
UWorld percentage (first pass, M2 year): 62% (during dedicated study time, this was probably closer to 68/69%)
Real score: 257

I want to do dermatology, so I was terrified when I saw everyone posting on here with really high scores on practice tests and lower on the real test. My advice would be not to worry too much about practice scores--from what I can tell, they give you a good idea of where you are, but it can vary greatly from person to person.

If anyone is interested in my study schedule, I'm happy to share; just PM me.

Good luck, everyone!

Spent a lot of time on this thread trying to comfort myself, figured I'd pay it forward:

UWorld: 79% - One pass in the first 4 of my 5 weeks of dedicated study time, I did timed 44Q blocks, but I didn't do random
NBME 16: 254 (91%) - 2 weeks out
Free 137: 95% - 10 days out (really helpful, would highly recommend it even though it's not a good score correlation)
NBME 17: 239 (88%) - 1 week out (freaked me out, super steep curve if you are scoring on the higher end, don't let it get you down)
NBME 18: 251 (90%) - 4 days out
Step 1: 258

Good luck to you!!

Default Why such a big difference

I took the UWorld assessment test 1 a week ago and scored 237 and took the NBME form 15 today and scored only 430/213. Can anyone tell me why there is such a bog difference. And what should be the game plan for me?

I think this forum was very helpful and I spent hours on it trying to estimate my score, and after 2 looooong months of waiting I can finally write this

UW qbank - first pass 51%
Kaplan Qbank - first pass 60%
- after redoing the wrong ones - 80%
UWSA2 : 200
NBME 18 (1 month before exam) : 202

Kaplan Sim 1 & 2 : 62%

Real score 217

Default Step 1

This forum was helpful to me during my study period to give me reassurance that my practice tests actually were meaningful, so here's my contribution. In terms of study tips, I followed a lot of the advice given in this Reddit post: (Google "272 UFAP to success reddit"...apparently I can't post links on here). Thank you to everyone else who posted before me.

NBME 13 two months out: 249
NBME 12 one month out: 251
NBME 16 2.5 weeks out: 256
NBME 17 ten days out: 264
UWSA1 five days out: 261
UWSA2 four days out: 263
USMLE Step 1 real deal: 266

Good luck!

Took exam July 7th
Uworld average: 76% ended in April (started in the fall, 6 month subscription, scores gradually increased to over 80% at the end)
Uworld sim: 257 in April (tends to overestimate)
Free 137: 89% 1 month before step
NBME 18: 243 4 weeks before step (this is the harder one, so i suggest do it last)
NBME 17: 262 1 week before step

I know it is far too late now. Hope you did well. I mainly revised FA repetitively and kept going through UW as much as possible.

Default Worried. If I was a Personality Disorder, I'd be Type C right now.

June - 6 months before = NBME 13 (offline) 74% (210)
June - 5.5 months before = School NBME 73% (~207)
End of July 4 months before - USMLE Rx Complete = 75% (predicted score on USMLE Rx is a joke, says 250)
Beginning August - 4 months before - NBME 1 (offline) = 72% (205)
Beginning August USMLE Rx Half-Simulation = 77%
End-August 4 months out - NBME 2 (offline) = 76% (215)
Mid-September NBME 3 (offline) = 80% (225)
End-September NBME 4 (offline) = 82% (230)
Beginning October NBME 5 (offline) = 79% (223)
Beginning October NBME 12 (ONLINE) = 500 (228)
October 7 NBME = 78 (220)

Planning on doing all NBMEs. Almost done UWorld (currently at 69% cumulative average). Did Kaplan Qbank, didn't like it (too nitpicky).

I take Step 1 at the end of December. Do you think its possible to improve ~20 points in 2.5 months? My target score is anything 240+... nervous about it...

Wow! Congrats . This opens so many doors for you. I hope I can get something decent . Planning to take mine towards the end of next year. Honestly, I don't know where and how to begin. Would you be so kind to share the details of your prep? How long, sources used, etc. What did you find most helpful? Thanks and best of luck on your Step 2.

Months 1&2: I read through First Aid twice

Months 3&4: I studied each subject from the above sources + revised First Aid quickly + revised each subject again quickly

Month 5: UWorld (105 q's/day [3 blocks of 35q's]). I had a few days at the end to quickly revise my incorrectly answered questions. On the last day of my 1 month subscription, I did a simulated exam with my marked questions (7 blocks of 60q's + 1 hour for breaks)

Month 6: I quick revised all of the sources I studied from before (First Aid+ all of the subjects). Five days before the exam, I took NBME 18 + UWSA 2 back-to-back. The day before the test, I only revised lightly and made sure to sleep early.


All in all, I studied First Aid 5 times and each subject around 3 times.

Out of all the sources I used, my favorites had to be Pathoma and BRS Physiology; both of which were excellent sources. While the other sources were good, none of them really stood out to me as a great source (especially the flash cards). Of course First Aid and UWorld were great (pretty much the best) sources. Interestingly, my performance on the UWorld qbank perfectly predicted my score. I got 86% correct, which was 96th percentile (my actual step to 1 score of 261 is also approximately 96th percentile). This correlation might not hold up for everyone, but in retrospect, it was the best predictor for me.





Good luck!

Thanks for your response. Did you also do Kaplan videos or NBMEs during your preparation? Just wondering how predictive the scores are

No I do any Kaplan videos, but I watched the Pathoma videos and they were very good.

I did use NBMEs. I got a 269 on NBME 18; this was about 5 days before the actual exam. My actual score was 261, so I think there's fairly good predictive value. From my hours of forum digging, I think it's safe to assume that most self-assessments give a score within +/- 10 of the real score, though there are definitely extreme cases.

I took step 1 and got a 265. My average on UWorld after the 1st pass was 86%, on the kaplan Q bank it was 90%. On most of the NBMEs I was averaging 250-264. Whenever I did the Q banks, I always put random mode on and did 40qs per 60minutes. I felt that the real exam was much more difficult and I was doing a lot more guessing.

Default NBME, UWA Correlation

COMP 12/15 (3 months out): 225
NBME form 16 02/20 (3 weeks out): 234
NBME form 18 02/27 (2 weeks out): 242
Uworld Assessment (7 days out): 266
NBME form 19: 03/06 (3 days out): 248

UWorld First pass: 79% 90th percentile

Actual Step 1 score 03/09/17: 258

I read posts like this far too often while I studied and while I awaited my results so I here I pass it forward with my test scores.

There is certainly a correlation b/w NBME/Uworld scores and the real deal, but do not obsess over them. Use the NBME exams to get used to the question style, adjust your timing, and improve your mental stamina. I had plenty of time in all of my Step 1 blocks to review tough questions and double check biostat math and I found this extra time to be very useful.

But in all honesty, there's no secret strategy to doing well on Step 1. Just study, learn as much as you can and answer the questions correctly. Whenever I was stuck b/w two answer choices I always went with what I knew for a fact and what I could prove to myself. I avoided guessing at all costs.

So my med school forces us to take a "COMP" before they allow us to sit for Step 1. So that is my COMP score above. I took about 10 days off for Christmas & New years, then studied 6 days/week until test day.


I went through Uworld 1 time in the 10 weeks of my dedicated study period. I finished with a week left before test day and went over around 300-400 of the Q's I had gotten wrong. I would've liked to go over all of the Q's I got wrong but ran out of time.

First of all, im an IMG; during med school I try to read First Aid (FA) as many times as necessary for studying every disease o any pharmacology I came up with , I seriously recommend to start reading FA as early as possibly and start a qbank also (use uworld after that one).

For Pathology: Goljan's is a very good source (it will give you a very solid base); Pathoma is also great, it teaches you some pathology in a very unique way that stick to your mind.

For Pharmacology: Kaplan's videos, is very important you master every drug written on FA; Pharmacology flashcard is great for reviewing it on your free time and during breaks from classes. The KEY to learn pharmacology, is REPETITION, be curious about EVERY drug and its mechanism of action. Every time I listened or saw anything about a drug, I tried to recall in my mind its mechanism of action, the uses of it and its side effects, if i failed in one of those, I intermediately reviewed quickly in my FA. That will help you master pharmacology,in fact it was one of my highest performance subjects on step 1.

Biochemistry, genetics, immunology: Kaplan's course.

Histology: FA was enough. Normal organ histo is a low yield topic, but, some tumor or pathology histo is important, specially breast and CNS tumor.

Biostatistics: Kaplan's course, qbank from Uworld (25 dollars) and practice every formula in a piece of paper a few times during your preparation and immediately before the test.

Micro: Microbiology made ridiculously simple.

Anatomy: Qbanks was enough for me.

Physiology: Kaplan's course and BRS Costanzo.

TO ALL THAT + Doctors in Training (DIT) course, very helpful, a quick and very efficient method to review and understand everything as a integrated matter. I highly recommend it.

UWORLD: YOU HAVE TO MASTER UWORLD IN ORDER TO ARCHIVE A HIGH SCORE! this is a very good studying resource, be ready to write everything in your FA that it is on uworld and not on FA. You have to go through every Q, even though you got it right, and go thought every explanation. With uworld (and other qbanks to) you must develop test taking strategy (a good set of knowledge in your head and poor test taking strategy= poor performance).

I HOPE IT CAN HELP YOU IN SOMEHOW, IF ANY DOUBT OR QUESTION, DON'T THINK TWICE TO ASK ME.

Hey congratulations and thanks for sharing your experience.

Could you please tell how long did it take you to do the second pass of UWorld? And which NBME did you do at the end of your first pass?

The reason I ask this is because I'm exactly sitting at 65% while doing the first pass of UW (some days it jumps to 66 but get backs to 65 the very next day lol). And my goal is 250 as well. Thanks
