Is this true ? I trust you, but Is ther any reference ? bcz I wanna read the full story !Also remember that not all blocks have the same difficulty, the computer system is interactive if they find you doing bad in a block then your next block would be easier and therefore potentially faster to finish up.
To be honest with you I don't have a reference for that. I was told this by University professors.Is this true ? I trust you, but Is ther any reference ? bcz I wanna read the full story !
It would be a very nice information !
Thank you very much..To be honest with you I don't have a reference for that. I was told this by University professors.
The NBME does not disclose the way they select questions and blocks for each candidate but there's strong argument saying that block difficulty varies and interactive.
I talked to three recent students who just took the exam. All of them told me that the first few blocks were far more difficult than the blocks at the end of the exam so that must have something to do with this speculation.
The phenomenon is called "Computerized Adaptive Testing" and it's not mentioned in the official USMLE bulletin but many believes it exists such as this page.
However, the NBME website mentions that they are currently researching this possibility see here
