    I think a passing score is 47%.

    Out of curiosity, do they give us the final score at the end of the session? As in, will you get a print out as you leave the comp lab?

    Yes, you will get your score immediately after finishing the last section of the Kaplan comp. It isnt dependent on any person, just the computer.

    It doesn't even take that long! As soon as you hit the button to end your last block, your score pops up on the screen. I sure wish the step could have done that!

    You are required to pass the Kaplan comp before you can finish basic sciences, but it's not difficult to do. If you don't pass the Kaplan comp, you probably need to re-evaluate what you've been doing in med school.

    Question-
    Why did they set the passing score at 52%?
    Doesn't that seem kind of low?
    Keep your eye on the prize.

    Hopefully, there will be no re-evaluation going on tomorrow afternoon.

    As far as I have heard, it is still 47% for us.

    According to the talk Dr. Y gave us, it is only 52% if you don't take the diagnostic. Otherwise, it is 47%.
