New exam score ranges are being developed to reflect best practices. An independent review of the new exam score ranges was conducted by the Central Examination Committee, responsible for the quality of content and exams, and comprised of the Chairs of all test committees for the MCCQE Part I and Part II.

How to compare scores with the new exam score ranges:

The manner in which scores can be compared remains consistent for both the former and new exam score ranges—that is, scores can be compared to the mean and standard deviation of total scores using results from when the new exam score range is established (spring 2018 for MCCQE Part I and fall 2018 for MCCQE Part II).
