Question How many questions can you get wrong on ck and still get a 99?

Hi, all,

Hope you're well. Took CK two weeks ago today. It was a tricky exam. I definitely did not feel as confident leaving CK, as I did for Step I (237/99). I thought CK was more difficult than Step 1. Some blocks seemed to be completely ob or peds. I had two questions on Gilbert's. Really? Several back pain questions

Just wondering if anyone know how many questions roughly one can miss and still get a 99 on ck? I read somewhere, specifically on this forum, that at least for step 1, you can miss 1 question for every 5 questions and still get a 99.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I hope (am praying) that I can get my score back this Wed!
