USMLE 1 Revision and Mock Test Series
One requires a lot of practice to clear competitive exams such as USMLE. PIME provides a wonderful platform for comprehensive revision tests for USMLE Part 1 and provides you real time USMLE Part 1 mock tests with the same number of questions and pattern in each block as the real USMLE - Part 1 exam. In addition we provide explanation for each and every answer and an immediate result.
The mock tests are designed in such a manner that a set of 46-48 questions is displayed on the screen in one block every time a doctor takes a test. The questions are selected intelligently by the system so that there is minimum repetition and the doctor sees questions which he/she has not attempted / Wrongly attempted before. As we have a huge database (continuously growing) the possibility of repeat questions is minimum.
USMLE 1 Exam Overview
The USMLE Step 1 examination is the first component of the USMLE and is taken by medical students and graduates seeking to practice medicine in the United States. The overall purpose of the Step 1 exam is to assess your understanding and conceptualization of the basic sciences knowledge to the practice of medicine. Step 1 is constructed from an integrated content outline that organizes basic science content according to general principles and individual organ systems. The majority of questions require the examinee to interpret graphic and tabular material, to identify gross and microscopic pathologic and normal specimens, and to solve problems through application of basic science principles. It includes content in the following basic sciences areas:
- Behavior Sciences
- Interdisciplinary topics, nutrition, genetics, cell biology and aging
Step 1 is a broadly based, integrated examination. Test items commonly require you to perform one or more of the following tasks:
- Interpret graphic and tabular material
- Identify gross and microscopic pathologic and normal specimens
- Apply basic science knowledge to clinical problems
USMLE 1 Test Length and Format
Step 1 has approximately 322 multiple-choice test items. This is divided into seven sixty minute blocks and administered in one eight hour testing session. For Step 1, during the defined time to complete the items in each block, you may answer the items in any order, review your responses, and change answers. After you exit the block, or when time expires, you can no longer review test items or change answers.
Step 1 consists of multiple choice questions with only one best answer. Each question will be structured with a statement or question followed by three to eleven response options, each labeled with a letter (e.g. : A, B, C, D, E) and arranged logically or alphabetically. Some response options will be partially correct, but only one option will be the best and correct answer. A portion of these questions will also involve the interpretation of graphs and images.
USMLE 1 Test Classification:
Step 1 is constructed according to an integrated content outline that organizes basic science material along two dimensions: System and Process.
- 40%–50% General principles
- 50%–60% Individual organ systems
- Nervous/special senses
- Skin/connective tissue
- 30%–50% Normal structure and function
- 30%–50% Abnormal processes

- A medical student officially enrolled in, or a graduate of, a US or Canadian medical school program leading to the MD degree that is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME),
- A medical student officially enrolled in, or a graduate of, a US medical school leading to the DO degree that is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), or
- A medical student officially enrolled in, or a graduate of, a medical school outside the United States and Canada and eligible for examination by the ECFMG.
- Scoring high in USMLE step 1, and step 2A- clinical knowledge exams up to 75 percentile (60% to 70%) is sufficient to pass step 1 and step 2A, but may not be sufficient to get into a residency program.
- Exams cannot be retaken to improve a score once an individual has passed. You should aim for 80 to 90 percentiles for internal medicine and 90 percentiles for a surgical residency.
