Kaplan Medical 76% in Kaplan Diagnostic Exam

Hey everyone I just took Kaplan diagnostic exam and scored 76%, what does this mean . The exam felt ridiculously simple, it doesn't even compare to their mind boggling Kaplan CK QBank which I finished at 64%. My exam is in 3 months and I didn't take UWorld yet


Here's my performance analysis

Btw, what is a high score on Kaplan simulated exams. By high I mean a score that correlates to > 250 on the real thing and how hard are these exams in comparison to their Qbank

No one seems to know the correlation between Kaplan exams and the real exam due to lack of input. Try taking NBME 4 or UWSA which are quite accurate in this regard.

Best of luck
