Does anyone know what a 70% on the Qbank simulated exam is equivalent to on the USMLE?

Thanks

It's passing, although it's impossible to tell the exact score. If that's an average of multiple blocks then that is an "ok" indicator, but it really doesn't correlate that well for everone (depends on your test, etc.). The kaplan person that came to my school said that about 60-65% correct indicates that you should pass. Who knows in reality though.

With all the studying I have been doing lately, I could use a bit of stimulation! Where do I get this "Stimulated" exam?


Seriously though, could it be a typo, where they meant simulated?
