Arrow Here's how you do it

Please have a look here

It's important to understand that you won't be getting those NBME scores out of 800 unless you do the official online NBME.

If you using unofficial offline NBME forms you won't be able to predict your USMLE score.

Thank you,
It's the same. They use the same scoring system for both NBMEs.

Arrow Get the three digit then convert to percentile

The table available in this post ( http://www.usmle-forums.com/general-...rrelation.html ) let you correlate your NBME score (which is a score out of 800) with your predicted three digit USMLE score.

Now if you want to convert that three digit score into a two-digit "percentile" score then you use the table available in this post ( http://www.usmle-forums.com/general-...it-scores.html ).

Please let me know if you need more clarification.
