    Hi guys,

    I was reading thru a few messages and some members have given the first time passing rates on boards for a few optometric colleges..I couldn't find any data for NECO or PCO, so i was wondering if anyone knows what the pass rate at these schools is?

    thanks!

    aren't there two boards for optometry students and thereby two that a pre-opt student should ask about(one you take after your second year and one after your 4th year)?

    You are correct!

    Part I: Basic Science
    Part II: Clinical Science
    Part III: Patient Care

    Read all about it at the NBEO web site.

    SCO's passing rate for part one was 92% this year. It usually is somewhere in the 90 percentile.
    Part II and III usually are passed by most people so comparison of the passage rates is not as useful.
