Hello,

I have heard from MANY students who I have attended medical school with that their NBME score correlated quite well with their actual exam score. I took the NBME exam and received my scores. I will be taking the REAL exam in two weeks------YIKKKKES! Anyways, I was able to obtain some information from the NBME site which I think everyone will be happy to see!

These correlations come STRAIGHT from the NBME site:

NBME score USMLE score (3 digit)
200------------------------<136
210------------------------136
250------------------------148
260------------------------151
320------------------------169
360------------------------180
370------------------------184
380------------------------186
450------------------------206
490------------------------216
500(Mean)----------------219
510------------------------221
520------------------------224
530------------------------226
550------------------------230
580------------------------236
600------------------------240
700------------------------256

Hope this helps
