That's really strange i even checked the usmle website for any recent

updates in the CK scoring system , but only chnage was in the content

and in the ( design of the website )

of course accord to any kind measurement u both should get 99

i think u should ask the ECFMG if there is any kind of change in the

scoring system and see what they will say ?

anyway u both still should be happy cuz now the ERAS takes only 3 digit

number and no more 2 digit number .

Yeah I called them up, they said they have changed the scoring system as of first of october, and I did confirm that only 3 digits is reported to the programs, not 2 digit, so I suppose I should be happy then.

Default From the USMLE official site

Additional changes to USMLE procedures for reporting scores
Posted: October 03, 2011
As was reported previously, the USMLE program has begun the process of eliminating the reporting of results on the 2-digit score scale to parties other than the examinee and any state licensing authority to which the examinee sends results.
Because USMLE will continue to report the 2-digit score to examinees and to state licensing authorities, the program will be making changes in scoring procedures to minimize the impact of future shifts in the relationship between 2-digit and 3-digit scores that result from USMLE’s periodic review of standards. The new scoring procedures will be implemented with the reporting of results for examinees who take a Step 1, Step 2 CK, or Step 3 examination on or after October 1, 2011.
The change in scoring procedures will introduce a more stable relationship between score scales in the future. Those receiving 2-digit score results under the new system will note that, in most instances, the 2-digit score associated with a specific 3-digit score will be substantially lower than it was prior to this change.
The change in scoring procedures described above does not correct the challenges associated with using the 2-digit score scale for decisions other than those that use a score of 75 or higher to identify examinees who have passed the examination. It is highly recommended that the 3-digit score scale be used for comparisons among examinees, especially for examinees who have tested at different points in time.

its ok u got a very good score , they changed the scoring system

just remember that 3 digits number now is all that matters , when they

previously said that they will stop using 2 digit number for ERAS

applications , they were preparing for this change .

i guess many ppl still were attached somehow ( maybe psychologically )

to the 2 digit number ( every body wants the 99 )

now ECFMG made it completely useless cuz some one who gave the exam

b4 1st of oct with someone with the same score would have defenitily

gotten 99 but now that u got 85 , the only way to truely compare is the 3

digit . so the program directors are forced now to use the 3 digits ,

i think this month there will be alot of ppl complaining of the same issue ,

may be u guys were the first to get the first shock , so u feel its a little

wiered ( the 3 of u should have gotten 99 ) accord to the previous

schedule posted on the usmle site , now the 3 of u are on a different

competitive scales .

Thanks. It's just so weird, like you said.., everybody is used to the 99... Anyway, I'm slowly getting it and hey.... I GOT 254!!! I should be jumping up and down, right?!

The old "99" was the biggest misnomer, as only the misinformed thought it represented a percentile. I'm assuming no programs were actually using that 2-digit value. It would be the equivalent of AMCAS reporting MCAT scores above 30 as "30+."

Celebrate your scores! And may the 2-digit score RIP.

Thanks everyone! well I have accepted it now. Our main aim is to secure a residency and for that, the two digit is no longer reported, so I might not be able to say I am a double 99er, but hey, atleast with 236, I won't be any less than the previous 99ers during the residency interviews.

And best of luck to all of you future exams takers, just be ready to accept the fact that very few of us, if any, are going to be 99ers from now on.

Lol.. that's the irony! Sounds funny, but it's very much true.

Anyway, i guess it's good in the sense that ppl will now aim for high 3-digit scores, which are the real thing, rather than being content with borderline 99s(~230).

my uworld average was 60%. but that was because i had started doing the bank along with my 1st read. so for a long time i kept scoring low. i didnt take any nbmes. i had chosen a date for the exam and i didnt want the nbmes to influence it. i was well prepared, and i even thought i did well on the exam too. although i screwed up the 1st 2 blocks and ended up leaving a few questions in both the blocks, maybe if that wouldnt have happened i wouldve gotten something in the 220s. but well, cant change the score now.

All the postings here were made 4 weeks ago and you all have received the scores. Which means you should have taken the exams before Oct. 1, 2011 (Took it on the Sept. 21, 2011 and got the scores on Oct. 12th and a double digit score of 99). So, none of you are coming under the new scoring procedures (“The new scoring procedures will be implemented with the reporting of results for examinees who take a Step 1, Step 2 CK, or Step 3 examination on or after October 1, 2011.” http://www.usmle.org/General_Informa...uncements.aspx). And according to this table (http://www.usmle.org/transcripts/sco...tml#step2exams) anyone who has taken the Step 2 CK exam between July 1, 2010 to Sept. 30, 2011, will see a 2 digit score of 99 if the 3 digit score is >226. And the table is from a 2 digit score to a 3 digit score for a particular time frame. That is where the complexity resides (and that is what say they are trying to fix and I am not sure how). For each year, the passing 3 digit score changes (looks like mostly upwards, few points a year) whereas the value 75 in the 2 digit score is supposed to represent a pass regardless of the year. So, more massaging must have taken place to arrive at the 2 digit number. In spite of that it appears the U.S. schools and the students prefer the 3 digit number (students are afraid to mention the 2 digit score lest they will be considered as FMGs!). Hence we see all this fuss. It appears there won’t be much change in the 2 digit to 3 digit score relationship though they don’t want to publish the conversion table etc. (they are just trying to wean people away from the 2 digit score but most State boards run by old timers and conservatives are the ones asking for it).

Read my post above. It appears according to their stated purpose, the 2 digit score should not be much different if the passing value on the 3 digit does not change very much (and it does by few points only). So, I am not still clear about this score discrepancy until I really see one myself.
