Historically, there's been an "ideal" CBSE score for OMFS applicants to shoot for, whether that was 70/200+ or 80/225+. My question is that, now that the scoring has gone to an equated percent correct, what is the new "ideal" score for a competitive applicant? Is there a conversion chart to understand how our score compares to other scores? For instance, I recently took one of the released NBME exams, and it told me my equated percent correct score was 76% and that there was a 99% chance of passing Step 1. My goal score was 80+, but now there's no way to tell. I appreciate any insight anyone might have on this matter!
