    I don't know where this formula came from. People use different modes. People do questions again. I know. But let's just see.

    This is for USMLEWorld for Step 1. If it under or overshot, if you could please give us the number. Thanks so much!

    I hope your formula is right lol. I'd love getting the score predicted by your formula. Exam on 6/23 (sigh, stressed out)

    It currently overpredicts my assessments by about 30 points. We'll see how it goes in a couple weeks!

    It undershot my score by 24 points. I wouldn't count on this to predict your score at all - I would put more stock in NBME's, but take those with a grain of salt too.

    I would be ecstaticly happy if it would only be right on the money. I'm not looking for greatness here. Just not failure.
