    Transfer to 5th semester BSIC

    Advertisements



    I was wondering if someone who completed the kaplan course for BSIC in 5th semester shed light on how the classes are structured. Is there an end of semester after 10 week review course or do we just leave the island come back to the states and take COMP and STEP 1 within 12 month timeframe after which we start clinical. I have heard that the number of questions in the test is lower and we need above 72 in order to pass the exam.

    When I left the island (2013)...the Kaplan course covered the first 8 weeks or so of Med 5. We took the COMP once before the course starts...and once after the course finished. Then we left the island... and in a few weeks of time.. started the clinical portion of Med 5 in the US (I did mine in Atl)...after which we had about a year to take and pass step 1. If you didn't pass the COMP exam on the island, I think you had 2-3 more chances for it in the US.

    Things may have changed now, but I hope this gives you an idea. The COMP is about 4 hours long and has around 200 questions, and yes, passing now is a 72 for STEP 1 and a 79 for STEP 2/CK. You want to study the same way as you would for STEP 1 such as First aid..uworld..pathoma..etc. Good luck!
