i didnt know that was possible.
Honestly I dont know how I did so well but it worked 2 fold, it really seemed to help getting interviews since I posted it early and I got a job working for Kaplan too
I want to call b.s. on your score, but I think I may even believe you, judging by the rest of the post. Has anyone else heard of a score that high? I've heard of 270s, but geez louise!
My parents asked what the Steps were out of, i.e., what the maximum was and I was like "I don't know." They thought it was so odd that I was taking a test that I didn't know what the maximum was. This just goes to show you that we still don't know what the maximum is!
I think the max is 300. 350 questions, but 50 don't count. 280 is still the highest I've seen. Congrats.
I actually think there is technically no max on the boards (or if there is, it's ridiculously high). I've been told that board scores are based on the national mean and standard deviations, with your absolute score (number of question right/300) being converted into a released value based on its relationship to the national mean - the goal being a mean national score of 216 with an SD of 24. So technically, if a given year has a more difficult exam (with a lower average absolute score) then the maximum released score goes up. That crazy 280 is probably a reflection of a great score on a tougher exam - nice work!
there has to eb a max. i thnk 300 is right. I dont think they set the mean.
Mad props to that rediculous application. Now I don't feel so bad about not matching to Beaumont!
