A computer-based exam will be given the last Friday of the course in the Volker Hall Computer Lab. This test will be a National Board of Medical Examiners Subject exam. The passing score is determined yearly, based on the UASOM and NBME data base (mean score and standard deviation from the past 3 years). The NBME Subject exam passing score for the 2014 - 2015 academic year is 60. Failure to pass this NBME Subject exam will require re-take within 12 weeks of the original exam date, pending approval by the School of Medicine.

On the day of the exam, arrive before or promptly at 7:30 AM as it will take a few minutes to get started and the exam will be two hours and thirty minutes.
