    Step 2 CK PASSING SCORE went from 196 to 203 ???!!!

    Advertisements



    Can anyone explain what does this mean question-wise on the actual exam? Do we need to do more questions to pass now? If this is so, then how can those who take Step 2CK after 1st of July, 2013 (the day the new passing score takes place) be evaluated by program directors fairly? Obviously, the people who took step 2CK before the score went up, will have a better score, but we all apply at the same time to residency programs. Is this considered in any way by program directors?

    Taking it before July didn't mean you automatically got a higher score, just meant that you had more room for error in passing. The average ck score keeps going up and up so they decided to up the minimum passing score as well
