How many questions do you have to answer correctly to get a good residency. ppl always mention a 99, roughly speaking how many questions would you have to answer correctly to get 99 centile.....75%?

Hi zak. To pass USMLE usually you need 75 per cent of question to be correctly answered. But for a good residency you should beat the score of 92 percent especially when you're an IMG with no connection in US. Anyhow it doesn't guarantee an IMG to obtain a post because there are many Americans competing that post.

Good luck
