Tips and Tricks on the APMLE Part 1 Exam

The APMLE Part 1 is a fairly difficult exam with an estimated first time test taker pass rate of 85% (Data taken across several randomly selected institutions), lower than the national average for many of the medical specialties.

The Part 1 exam is 205 podiatry questions, and it’s best to make an educated guess if you don’t know the correct answer as there are no points for unanswered questions. Make sure you submit an answer for each question. Students can also take APMLE practice tests here.

Starting in July 2017, test-takers will be allowed to return to a previous question and mark questions for review. A review screen will be available at the end of the exam.

Study Strategy

Particular emphasis should be be placed on the following categories in this order during a student’s study session:

  • Lower limb
  • Pharmacology
  • Microbiology
  • Physiology

Historically, we have found that there is a strong and statistically significant correlation between the number of practice questions that a student takes (particularly key topics) and their Part 1 pass rate. We suggest at least three months of preparation time and going through all of the questions at least twice, and reading the explanations. Even if a student gets the question correct, it’s important to read through the rationale and understand the teaching points that are included with each question.

Given the way that the exam is graded, it is important for students to know how they compare to the national average before going into the exam. BoardVitals provides a comparison basis on each question, as well as on each category so that students can ensure that they are in the range of passing the exam. We also suggest the next best question for each student individually based on previous performance.
