    I've seen differences in opinions (if you can call them that) on how to get a 1 in STEP. I seem to remember Siklos saying in his booklet that a good go at 4 out of your 6 picked questions will get you enough, but an average is 70 for a 1. 70/4 is 17.5 each question is marked out of 20. 17.5/20 is more than a "good go" at a question? Someone help explain

    The advice for four good goes was more relevant back in the olden days. Nowadays, four good goes and 2 partials or 5 moderate goes, etc... is more accurate for getting a 1 on STEP I and II.

    On STEP III, the advice becomes a little more applicable and you can often get a 1 with four good goes, although it's (imo) useful to get the first (easy) five marks off another two question in any case.
