20 wrong questions in an NBME, how much [3-digit] score does that correlate to?
i know getting the same number of answers correct\or wrong on different NBME forms doesnt always have the same curve,,, but a range please? or from ur tests, what was the score and how many questions did u miss?
thank u

offline??? multiply by 1.4... that can give you an approximation...

the general rule is:
number of correct questions * 1.4 = 3-digit score

Offcourse, like you said, this is a range. An online NBME might give you a different score.

hi i got 19 wrong today it was 610/247
so i guess 20 should be around that.

Seems that the 1.4 calculation abit over predicts

The 1.4 calculation is less accurate when using it on high scores.

My first online NBME of 165 could perfectly be calculated using the 1.4 rule.
My second NBME of 205 could also be perfectly calculated using the 1.4 rule.
