Default You'll need a higher score to remain competitive

The average score for first-time test takers from US/Canadian medical schools in 2015 was 229 with a standard deviation of 20. The mean USMLE Step 1 score for those who matched in pediatrics in 2016 was 230. Your current scores are closer to the mean for those who did not match (207).

For more information about USMLE Step 1 scores, preparation and more check out this quick guide made specifically for AMGs
