Yah, that's correct Kaplan has made a great job in providing us with the estimator but I have two critiques about it

First: the number of questions asked in the form as shown in your screenshot is pointless. No matter how many questions you enter it will give you the same prediction for a particular Kaplan percentage. So why did they include it? I was guessing that when we do more Kaplan questions our score prediction should go higher slightly or at least the 16+/- difference get narrowed as we take more questions. but that's not happening in that estimator.

Second: you cannot estimate your score for a percentage less than 50%, while 50% in Kaplan gives 211/88 USMLE prediction! So how about people who are getting 45% in Kaplan, they may still pass the USMLE right?
