    Has the comp become more difficult to pass?

    Advertisements



    Hi all:
    Are there students out there having trouble passing the comp so that they can take step 1? Just wondering have many students been passing with 64 recently? What has been helping to get that score?
    Would appreciate advice from those who have scored this 64+ score?
    Thanks.

    I did not pass the comp when I was on the island. I passed the comp at the end of the 5th semester. I read the 1st Aid and Medessentials once and read some notes from 5th semester. I got a 65. Unfortunately I dont have the notes any more but doing the $45 NBME test can help as well.

    the allotted number of times a person can take the comp is 3.....and depending on whether ur lucky or not....i think they give you one more chance. but 4 is the absolute max.

    Hi guys, gotta take the comp next week before I can sit for the step...I really want to pass it because otherwise it's another 6 months before I can take it again, i.e. more lost time. I've been studying FA, did questions, doing DIT, anything I'm missing?? Has anyone taken it this year to see if it's gotten harder?

    Thanks for any feedback guys
    Best to all!

    I'm sorry this is off-topic. I am a Village Voice reporter, and I'm working on an article about the new CityDoctors scholarship program that will send NY students to SGU? Does anyone know anyone who is applying?

    To those of you reading in 2018, the comp score necessary to be able to even sit for Step1 is 72 on the scale.

    Has the comp before they let you sit for step 1 become more difficult to pass? What score is needed to pass now?
