    What "kind" of 95 do you want?

    Aren't there different 3-digit score possibilities that will give you a 95 on the 2-digit scale?

    I've always wondered where these terms like sitting or giving a test came from. What happened to good ol taking the test? Maybe it's a british english thing since it seems to be more common in fmg's.

    My all-time 'favorite' is, "writing the test".

    "I'm writing the test next week."

    HUH! WHAT!????


    But I DO understand it's a non-U.S. term. Likewise, they would say to us "what do you mean 'TAKING' the test? where are you TAKING it to?".

    Let's update the official lingo. How does bubbling the Usmle sound? Maybe clicking?

    "I'm clicking USMLE Step 1 soon...." I think "clicking" is the most precise term to use nowaday since the exam is CBT format :oops:

    They have doctors in countries other than the US...and in those countries there are colloquialisms that may not exist in America.
