    I am just guessing because I dont know but I figure the lowest score you can get in each is a big fat zero...someone correct me if i am wrong...:laugh:

    Thanks Captain Obvious. I might imagine that this post is referring to the minimum passing score on each of these tests...could be wrong though. i do appreciate the sarcasm though...:)

    The minimum for USMLE recently (this year) changed from a 182 to a 185. I don't know if it's possible to predict the max score b/c of the experimental questions.

    Are the questions worth 1 or 1.5 or 3 points each?

    also, most people assume that comlex is out of 800, but it's actually out of 900; someone in LECOM's 2007 class scored an 850 on comlex level 1
