COMLEX Level 1 Prep Just Got Easier

The COMLEX, or, Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination, is a set of three standardized medical exams known as Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. COMLEX Level 1, the first of the COMLEX exams, is intended to assess student readiness for lifelong practice-based learning as a doctor of osteopathic medicine.

Level 1 is considered to be one of the most important and most challenging tests in an osteopathic medical student’s career and is often taken within days or weeks of USMLE Step 1. Preparation for this exam (especially alongside the USMLE) can feel very overwhelming which is why COMLEX Level 1 tutoring is a great option for many students.

An experienced tutor can provide structure, guidance, and feedback while helping establish sound study strategies tailored to one's strengths and weaknesses. They also supply the expertise and insight to help you be prepared for the questions you will be asked on test day.

This is why learning how to study for COMLEX Level 1 can provide you with the confidence and clarity needed to not only understand the test questions, but to build the endurance to help get you through the long exam.

What is COMLEX Level 1?

How is COMLEX Level 1 scored?

COMLEX Level 1 is scored as pass/fail. Score reports have two sections: The status of “Pass” or “Fail,” and the Performance Profile that provides performance information to the examinee (and the school) for the purposes of continuous quality improvement and lifelong learning.


How is COMLEX Level 1 administered?

So, how long is COMLEX Level 1? COMLEX Level 1 is a 352 question one-day exam that consists of two computer-based test sessions. Each session is four hours long followed by a 40 minute break. Within each session, a 10 minute break is allowed.
