USMLE Step2 CK Exam

Self-Assessment Exams


The "Step 2 Self-Assessment Exam (SimExam)" is UWorld's latest web-based product, which closely resembles the simulated experience of the actual Step 2 CK portion of the USMLE™. All content of the simulated self-assessment exam has been created through the individual efforts of UWorld’s own physician staff members.

Similar to the NBME Self-Assessment Exam, each exam consists of four blocks of 44 multiple-choice questions, with a total of 176 questions for the entire simulated exam. Each block contains diverse questions from different divisions and subdivisions of medicine. The questions are specially designed to reflect the most recent exam format and are selected from very high yield topics.

Our self-assessment exam will provide a detailed analysis of relative strength and weakness in difference subjects and systems. It also provides an approximate three digit USMLE score based on UWorld historical data.

The subscriber will have up to one hour to complete each 44 question block, with a cumulative test time of four hours to complete the entire exam. S/he will have an opportunity to take a break at the end of each block. While this simulated exam can only be taken once, the subscriber has the option to review the entire exam for up to two weeks.
