hi friends...
i got 210=450 on nbme 11
nbme 12 -i was in much better condition..uworld was done like 1400 qs,...score improved and now got 242 on nbme 12..
got 600-245 in nbme 13...nbme 13 is super weird and a lot of my answers were just blinD guesses/educated guesses....and most of them got right!!I HOPE THE SAME HAPPENS IN THE REAL EXAM!!
AND IN NBME 7...GOT 570/238....
my exams on 29 october...

nbme 6=500-221....
one block is scary hard...
2 are easy...
one is high-medium..

so my nbmes-

11=210
12=242
13=245
7=238
6=221

nbme 6 acts as ur lower limit
as it is the only nbme that underpredicts by 8-10
poiunts...


take nbme 6 and 13 early
coz if u take them last they can dampen confidence..
i did-11,12,13,7,6

but my preferred order wud be-7,6,13,12,11

just for being in good spirits and if u do this way..u will learn from ur bad nbmes...6,7,13 and
11 and 12 will lift u up..

just my opinion...

now i have 16 days...
i plan to read fa thrice...
and read nbme explainations from the net...
i will read fa 2-3-4 times...will take uw notes of only marked qs and will see some bad subs...

need ur advise...u think do i need to add something else??
thank u...

my nbme 13=600/245....

13 much weirder than 12+11 combined...

i guessed many weird qs and got right so nbme 13 isnt that good...

11 and 12 are the best

11 and 12.......dont go for 13...
11 and 12 are the most accurate predictors....
order of accuracy-12-11-7-6-13
i heard us students give 11 and 12 and that is considered as a range...
so 11 and 12
uswa 1 and nbme 11 as many say are the best predictors....

and do the rest of the forms offline...
read answer keys from usmleforum.com
just google it like nbme 7 answer key and open the result with usmleforum.com

common formula for nbme is...
get ur total correct qs out of 200.....lets say u get 160 right out of 200....then multiply this with 1.4...and thats ur 3 digit score....ie-160=224...150=210.....+-8....

for uworld-
complete all ur qbank...all 2000 qs....
get total right answers out of last 5 blocks...
ie...lets take 46qs a block...
uget 200/230 right...so
multiply it with 2.44 and add 70
thats ur 3 digit score...
just internet methods..
but widely used...
most accurate are nbme 11 and 12..

USMLE STEP 1 SCORE ESTIMATION METHODS

3 METHODS I HAVE HEARD ABOUT-

1ST-

UWORLD CUMULATIVE SCORE=

FINISH ALL 2000 QS...
GET CUMMULATIVE %
LETS SAY U GET 70% AT THE END OF 2000 QS...
MULTIPLY THAT BY 2.3 AND ADD 84 TO THAT...
THATS UR 3 DIGIT SCORE...
FOR 70 THAT WUD BE-70*2.3=171+84=255

2ND

common formula for nbme is...
get ur total correct qs out of 200.....lets say u get 160 right out of 200....then multiply this with 1.4...and thats ur 3 digit score....ie-160=224...150=210.....+-8....

for uworld-
complete all ur qbank...all 2000 qs....
get total right answers out of last 5 blocks...
ie...lets take 46qs a block...
uget 200/230 right...
so 87%-
multiply it with 2.44=212 and add 70
292...thats ur 3 digit score...
just internet methods..
but widely used...UWORLD=x%2.44+70
most accurate are nbme 11 and 12..



ITS AN AWESOME SCORE CALCULATOR HERE...ITS A TABLE....
BETTER PRINT IT OUT THE WAY I DID....

so a 204/440 on the UWSA form 1 falls where in this calculation?

Can you say please, how many incorrect answers are equal 238?

I want to do offline, so, need kind of reference point.

Thanks!
