    Good news

    I've known at least 4 people who attended AUA who scored in the 90 percentile on the Step 1 in the past 3 months. Congratulations to all of them.

    its not a percentile...a passing grade of 188 is equivalent to 75 any grade above 235 or 236 not sure which is equivalent to a 99....so its not a rank or percentile, its just a score on the 2 digit scale...but all the same, congrats to them.

    Assumptions used to create conversion graph:

    Normal Statistical Distribution

    USMLE Step 1 Score Mean of 217

    USMLE Step 1 Score Standard Deviation of 24

    Please note that these assumptions may be different for your actual test group (however they should be somewhat close). [http://www.spam.org/step1_estimator/...onversion.htm]

    At present, the national mean score is 221, with a standard deviation of 21; an increase from the previous two means, which were 218 (standard deviation of 23) and 215 (standard deviation 20).
