    UWORLD formula to calculate Step1 score

    Advertisements



    Hey was told about this formula, that helps you calculate your step 1 three digit score. I dont know how true this is, but some people who have taken and passed the exam said it sounds about right. Has anyone heard about this formula and what do you have to say about

    (your consistant avg x 2.33) + 83 = estimated Step 1 score

    for example 60% for Uworld.
    (60 x2.33)+83=
    139.8 + 83 = 222.8

    any if you do a ratio 75/185 = x/222.8 then x=90.324%

    I would love to hear some feedback from people to verify this formula.

    I think it was
    2x UW% + 84= close to 3 digit score

    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    UW equation

    Either way, it underestimated my scores...

    I didn't take NBME because I heard they overestimate...

    Flash Based Score Estimator

    I have been using the score calculator here on a website called mystep1. weebly. com I cant post the real link just yet bc i am new to this forum. just take the space out. anyway, its pretty neat. The previous formula of uworld x 2.33 + 83 I think is a bit high. I have hear 2.2 is a more accurate representation, jsut fyi.

    It is pretty neat bc you can put uworld, nbme, kaplan scores, etc into it and it does a regression thing on a bell curve. It uses all the scores at once instead of jsut uworld or just nbme.
