Can someone tell me what you need (before the curve) to pass part one? I understand you need a higher score for Tooth Anatomy and Occlusions, but what about the other subject areas? I am feeling anxious about Monday and would appreciate any opinions going in to the test-thanks

GOOD LUCK TO ALL ON MONDAY JULY 15TH!!!:D

A classmate of mine called the ADA. They said historically, a raw score of 55 to 60 (out of 100) is scaled to a 75 (passing). That's all I know, take it as you want.

What percentile would a 95 on NBDE I be? I didn't get that...I haven't even taking it yet...I just read a post about 95+ for specializing. Good luck to those taking it tomorrow.

Doggie - no, actually you don't need a raw score of 90. There are 100 questions. Up to 15% of those questions are experimental so they don't count. So depending on your raw score, they scale it upto a score out of 100. Then you take that score and see where it falls in the percentiles.

You probably only need a raw score of about 50 - 55 to get a scaled score of 75. Someone told me that around 24 points is added to a raw score to get the scaled score. I think that would be a good estimation.
