The Becker Promise*

Our Promise to Students Preparing for the USMLE®

The Becker Promise*

Our Promise? To provide students with the utmost opportunity to pass the USMLE® by using Becker's comprehensive materials and learning approach. Students that utilize Becker’ USMLE® Step 1, Step 2 CK, or Step 2 CS  Live and Live Online review courses but do not pass the USMLE® exam, may repeat the same Step 1, Step 2 CK, or Step 2 CS Live or Live Online review course with a savings on retail pricing.

Eligibility Requirements 

To be eligible for the Becker Promise, students must:

  • Successfully attend 80% of all live course lectures. For USMLE® Step 2 CS Workshops or Assessments, attendance for at least 80% of scheduled sessions/patient encounters is required. Students meeting the criteria will be confirmed through daily attendance tracking conducted during the live and live online course. 
  • Completion of a content examination provided by Becker. 
    • For USMLE® Step 1 courses, students must complete the Becker USMLE® Step 1 Diagnostic Exam during the first week of the course. There is no minimum required score on the Diagnostic Exam as it is a tool to help students understand areas of strength and opportunity as the course begins. Students must also complete a Becker USMLE® Step 1 Simulated Exam and earn a score of at least 50% within six (6) weeks of the last scheduled day of instruction of the Becker Exam Review course.
    • For USMLE® Step 2 CK courses, students must complete an NBME assessment, during the first week of the course. There is no minimum required score on the NBME assessment as it is an opportunity to help students understand areas of strength and opportunity as the course begins. Students must also complete a post-course NBME assessment and earn a score of at least 400 within six (6) weeks of the last scheduled day of instruction of the Becker Exam Review course.
    • For USMLE® Step 2 CS courses, students must complete the Becker USMLE® Step 2 CS Assessment and earn a rating of "pass."
