was wondering if anyone knew whether the passrate will stay around 96% or if they are going to make it tougher. Additionally from speaking to older residents sounds like the pass mark was around 60-62% does anyone know if this will stay the same?
Im planning on calling them tomorrow and asking, will update then.
Can tell you the pass rate is only that high for now because it is such a new test with content that is still in flux (they definitely want to avoid advanced information on the exam like interpreting popliteal ultrasound images for peripheral nerve blocks), the rate will be inching backwards to fall in line with written Part II pass rates historically, at least that is the ABA's plan. Now exactly WHERE that will fall for each year is probably what the ABA is discussion about now (or did so very recently).
