I have completed 3/4 of the UWorld Q Bank and my overall percentage is 81%. What will this correlate to on exam day?

that's apparently good.
take a look at the resources i found
http://usmle-score-correlation.blogspot.com/
*http://clinicalreview.com/ClinicalReview/resources/usmle-score-calculator.html
*http://www.medfriends.org/step1_estimator/

*i do appreciate that some of these graphs refer to step 1 in particular, but i still think that it is useful as a reference

hope this helps

in return, i would like to go and ask what was your starting percentage of questions correct and how long did it take for you to get to your current 80% correct. also i would like to ask how quickly did you go through each set of 50, questions and answers. for my own rough idea...

My initial percentage was about 70-75 and it took me about 5 tests of 44 questions to start getting an average of 80. Some tests I score like 88 or even low 90s and then other tests I have dropped down to 70, but most of my tests are 81% and that is what my overall average is right now. Just took the first self assessment from UWorld this morning and scored 800.

To go through a 44-question set, it will take me about 40 minutes (sometimes 35 mins, sometimes 45 mins) to get through every question, and then I usually go back and look at my marked questions.

To go through the answers for a 44-question set, I read everything and highlight and take notes so it takes me around 4 hours.

Hi,

Do you maybe know what the UWorld self assessment score 600/240 means. Does the 3 digit score (240)correlate with the actual usmle exam score?
