Peer Group Comparison

You can see your peer group comparison in the Analysis > Study Summary section of the platform

The Peer Group Comparison lets you know where you stand in relation to other students with the same study objective. The graph is based on a statistical model that compares your performance on the questions you’ve completed to other AMBOSS users who have completed those same questions. If you're in the 60th percentile, it means that 60% of students scored lower than you, and 40% of them scored higher. The difficulty of the questions influences your percentile, as it's more likely that fewer people get more difficult answers right! 


Don’t be discouraged if your percentile or percentage is low! When interpreting this metric, it’s important to remember the following: the timing of your exam is something that AMBOSS does not take into account when calculating peer comparisons. Additionally, it’s important for you to focus on change over time; how this statistic evolves will tell you more about your studies than just a snapshot in time.
