According to the AOA the pass rate is about 96%. I haven't taken it yet, but do know a couple of people who took it last year and failed. I don't know the particulars in those instances but they've got to validate their test somehow by failing some people so maybe their number was just up.

I see.

The interesting thing is that there isn't a grievence process if you do fail this "subjective test" and you have to pay $1000 again to take it again. Also an interesting note to those applying to the allopathic residencies, some of them require you to have passed the test in order to start your residency. You can find out which ones through freida. When I did ask why I had failed the test I was told that they couldn't divulge that information because it would comprimise the integrity of the test.
