I just took my first official NBME exam today - Basic Science 5 and scored 380 - 193. I am 3 months out from Step and am wondering how much I can realistically bring my score up. I am still finishing classes. I will be done March 1 and will have my comprehensive basic science exam mid-March. I want to score 240+ so I am just wondering if anyone has had any experience with how much your score improves through the months leading up to the exam.
