    I just took the kaplan diagnostic usmle step 1...but I have no clue what my score means.
    Can someone give me a rough idea by telling me how exactly their diagnostic '%' correlated to the actual step 1 score? (ie: 60% = 200)

    thanks

    Although I never took the kaplan USMLE diagnostic, I did do most of the internet Q-Bank questions. I usually got 60-65% on these with few in the 50s and a few in the 70s. This correlated to a real Step I score around 230.

    I took the Kaplan diagnostic Step 1 in Feb. When we got them back, the rep said that the national average on that particular exam is 45%. I'm not sure if they have multiple forms for that test, but I suspect they make it hard so people will sign up for their classes.
