hey guys....need help...
wt should be the average score in consult to get 99....in their score relater they says 66% correlate with 248....but i find some Qs are straight forward...n some really difficult one..(almost new things that i hv not read in Kaplan n Goljan)..ratio of simpler n difficult is about 7:2 i think...

well any one who hv tried this bank...let me know wt should be the "good" score...as getting 66% in their bank is not a tough job...n I don't think their bank is that much difficult that 66% will get u 248....!!

at the start I was scoring high...but my score is on downward slope...don't know y....:(

Remember that the actual exam will contain easy, medium, difficult, and impossible questions. So a qbank having easy questions in addition to difficult one is realistic. So may be their correlation is correct.

I've done Consult scorrelator before my exam. It predicted my score minus 10 points so if it's telling 248 then you should expect 238 which is still awesome :rolleyes:
thanks....glad to here that it predicts near accurate...
well on score relater test i got 79%....but in the bank m scoring 76%....n 66% means 248....so i think m on safe side...:)

The 2-digit score is not a percentile

The percentile rank has nothing to do with your two-digit USMLE score.
For several reasons:
First, the two-digit USMLE score is not a percentile, there's much more than 25% passing the exam nowadays. Read more about this
Second, as you pointed out the qbank percentile is certainly erroneous because many people do practice and untimed and non-random and repeated times ...etc Read more

Results?

Hi Khushboo,

I am currently using USMLE Consult and wanted to know from your experience...how is it compare to the actual exam (I am assuming you already took the actual exam...if not please let me know)? Also, what did you end up scoring on USMLE Consult and what did it predict as your score? What was your Real exam score (if you don't mind me asking)? I just want to find out if Consult is any good as a qbank and also as a score predictor!:D
