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.

Real CK Score 256

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)

Took following tests -

NBME4 - (9 days to go) - 257 (wanted to grab the bull by the horns :p so went straight to 4)
NBME2 - (7 day to go) - 237 (I found form2 more complicated than 4 or may be I was over confident)
UWSA - (4 days to go) - 252 (fair enough)
NBME3 - (1 day to go) - 256 (I was mentally done with it so was really not paying attention but still scored assuring 250+)

Real Exam Score 254

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
