Preparing for Residency Starts Now

COMLEX Level 2 is a challenging test and requires significant studying and ultimately decides if you should be allowed to proceed in your medical studies and anticipated career as a DO. Especially as Level 1 transitions to a pass/fail scoring model, excellent performance on COMLEX 2 (as well as USMLE Step 2 CK) is imperative to matching into a great residency program. This is why many students can benefit from working with a COMLEX Level 2 tutor to help boost their scores and achieve their goals.

Here’s a COMLEX Level 2 breakdown, or a COMLEX Level 2 blueprint:

What is COMLEX Level 2?

The second of the three COMLEX exams, COMLEX Level 2 CE (Cognitive Evaluation), is designed to assess foundational biomedical sciences and osteopathic principles with an emphasis on knowledge of clinical science, care, and settings.

Level 2-CE is scored on a scale of 9-999 with the national average score for first-time test takers being 520±100 (for 2016-2017). The COMLEX Level 2 CE format is such that the lowest passing score for COMLEX Level 2-CE is 400 (as of January 2020).


How is COMLEX Level 2 administered?

Like Level 1, Level 2-CE consists of 400 questions divided into two 4-hour blocks. Examinees are permitted a 40-minute break between sessions and up to a 10-minute break during each session.
