Default What is the average score for Step 3?

Hi guys,

What is the average score for Step 3? And how hard is it to score into the 240s? I scored in the mid-230s for Step 2CK so I want to improve on that.

Thanks

Smile Step 3 Average

Hi,

The average Step 3 score seems to be around 222 according to the statistics in 2014.

I am currently preparing for step 3. I think your step 2 grade is very good, just follow the general plan for step 3 preparation plan and go ahead and do your exam.

The step 3 grade doesn't really matter to anyone (unless you have failed), but scoring 220+ should be excellent.

All the best.

Thanks so much. Is it possible to score in the 240s? Is there a way that I can find out before the test that I'll be scoring in that range?

Thanks

Question Score prediction- Step 3

Hi,

To be honest I am not sure how accurate is the NBME or UWSA in predicting the grade.

I am sure you will find many previous posts talking about this.

All the best
