What is the highest possible USMLE Score!
The hero that I know is someone who got 276 in CK, do you know of any higher scores?
Let's make it a thread where share our thoughts about the highest possible USMLE score.

I heard of 280 in Step 1, but am not sure of how true that story is

I don't think there's a possible highest cap in USMLE scores. If we hypothesize that they follow a statistical distribution curve then any given score should have certain percentile above it. Learn more about USMLE Score Calculation.
Again, if we postulate the distribution curve and the fact they give a mean and a standard deviation in score reports which are currently around 220 for the mean and 20 for the standard deviation then a score of 280 should merely indicate three standard deviations above the mean which means still you have 0.3% of people above it!
Wikipedia article talks about a maximum of 300 but I don't think that's correct.

The highest score that I personally heard of is 272 in CK.

The highest score I ever heard of in CK is 281 for a guy named Alex and I think he was from Ohio Med school.

I don't know what the highest score is. I got a 278 in April but I doubt that is close.

Thanks for the compliment, but I'm no genius. Just had a good day I guess.
