    COMP exam

    Advertisements



    I am a recently admitted student and i was just wondering what the new policy on the NBME COMP is. From what I understand, if we pass both the Path and Physio Shelf before 5th semester we dont need to pass the COMP?? Otherwise we have 2 attempts to pass it??

    You have to take the first comp, if you fail (<64) you take the path & phys shelf. If your grade is above a 62 on both of these, you dont have to take the 3rd comp. If you fail the 3rd comp, you have to take a remedial course (kaplan, Pass, etc) then come back to the island and retake the comp.

    No you take them after the 1st comp. If you took them early then you might forget the material. The intent is to make sure you are prepped right before you take STEP-1 as its very path/physio heavy.
