    Hi,
    Here is the link to the conversion chart...

    http://dentistry.uic.edu/students/exams/nbp1_1998/NatBrdPrt1Dec1998ScoreConversion.pdf


    For Biochem Physio you need 71 to get 90 and for Micro Path you need 69-70 to get 90.
    Hope this helps,
    :thumbup: Good Luck

    Thanks for your kind help... just wanted to confirm the conversion chart states Dec1998 . does it change every year or its the same since then and is a standard. i thought they have some criteria and have different conversion charts for each exam taken.
    Please Advice

    Hi,
    You are right... the conversion charts differ for each exam... this one is only a sample ...
