Hi,
I have some confusions...
I have just done online NBME 2 and got 225. So how many percent Qs did I got right?

When I checked offline answers I got 149/184=80% correct.
So if I want 240 I have to answer correctly around 90-95% Qs?
thanks

The offline answers you checked are likely wrong, nobody knows the correct answers of the NBME unless you do extended feedback.

In addition, the questions in NBME have different weight. Difficult questions have more weight than easy questions. Therefore, you cannot correlate between the number of correct answers and the three digit score.

Certainly, you don't need to answer 95% of questions correct to get 240 in NBME or in the real USMLE exam.
