NBME, UWSA, Qbanks Averages, Correlation with Real Step 2 CK Exam Score
 
In this thread we ask those who have got their CK results to post their USMLE World, Kaplan Qbank, Other Qbanks, NBME, UWSAs, and any other question bank scores.

This will help future prospective CK takers to predict their CK according to their current performance in the above mentioned banks.

Sometimes, members forget to post here, so what we do, we copy their experiences from other threads and add them here.

Please do not change the theme of the thread. Post only similar to other posts. If you have questions to the posters, you can PM them, do not ask them in this thread.

There's a similar thread for Step 1, here's the link

I don't know what UWSA is, and I did not do any of the NBMEs.

My overall Kaplan QBank percentage was 75% as far as I can remember. I did not use UWorld.

Did Kaplan CK Qbank (57% average percentage, timed random mode, I finished only 60% of questions)

USMLE World My first round was subject wise, timed mode and I scored 60% (100% complete).

About 2 months before my exam I did NBME 2 standard mode ( not the self paced one) and i scored 202.

Afterwards, I did Uworld again and scored 85% on average.

2 weeks before my exam I did UWSA and I scored 211.

Real Exam score 230(81)

First of all i've got to emphasize that the closest SA to my score was UWSA .. only one point difference ... and this was the last assessment I took.

The first assessment to take was NBME4: I took it after I finished all my studying and doing UWQB and revising it again once. U want to start ur assessment with a reliable Form(according to what people say) to see where u stand.I took it online. The performance profile is very important thatz why Online is better than offline.

One week later I took NBME 1: They say itz the easiest but there are many challenging questions + It covers some topics that weren't in NBME 4. Online.

One week later I took NBME 2: also one of the most reliable SA forms .. I wanted to see improvement from NBME 4 and it was very useful. I took it online as well.

One week later I took UWSA: By that point, I set my mind that this was the real exam and that I had to get a really good score

Just got my result today, I got 255.

Uworld: 75% random, timed and first pass. This is the most important part of my prep. The concepts in uworld are very similar to the concepts tested in the exam itself and it's also the closest thing to the actual exam in terms of question format.
Kaplan qbank: I did only 40% of it and got 64% average; I think it's useless because it tests very low yield topics which are very unlikely to be tested on the exam and even the question format is very different from the exam.
UWSA: 250 ( 2 months before the exam ).
NBME 4: 246 ( 1 month before the exam ).
NBME 6: 250 ( 2 weeks before the exam ).

From my experience I have to stress on something extremely IMP

I was soooooo nervous the day before my exam and I couldn't sleep well that night, even though I knew that I did my best and I can't do anything more

because I was soooo nervous I couldn't focus well in the exam
and I'm sure if I wasn't nervous that day I would get a higher score maybe by 10-15 points

So guys my advice is to relaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaax the day of exam, to have a good night sleep and not to worry you will do great you have studied so hard for months



but at the end I'm happy with my score :D:D:D
and I had a lesson>>> be relaxed and don't overthink because worrying will affect your score negatively

This is for the average students

(March, 2013) NBME Form 2: 149
(July, 2013) NBME form 3: 175

Had a back injury that needed surgery which made me completely stop studying for a good 6/7 months after cs

(March, 2014) NBME form 4: 173
(April, 2014) Nbme form 6: 179

UWSA: took it two times month apart, didn't look at the answers after the first time; 195 and then got a 230 ( obviously this number was a bit biased)

Free 150: a week before 78 %
Uworld: 66 %

Real deal: 212

A bit bummed by the score but I worked my ass off, found this exam a lot harder then step 1, stepped out the exam feeling like I failed. hope my experience can help someone, msg me if you have any questions
