Default 90 +|- 2

I reviewed your UW score ,, It correlates to an average of 90 may be +/- 2 standard deviations ,, I guess you finished about 50% of your UW Qbank by now ,, I hope you can improve your performance during the rest of your practice ,, Good Luck

Default The correlation tables

there is a famous correlation table on the internet ,, It's not so accurate but it is the best available ,, we use it to tell where we are standing ,, here is the link and u can use it yourself ,, but please while using it try to underestimate yourself a little bit so as not to get the wrong impression a bout your preparation level ,, Good Luck

Doing Uworld subject wise is purposeless, do it random timed.

I totally agree with u ,, The best estimator of your performance is random timed ,, The test writer wants you to be alert and standby in every moment ,, They want you to solve problems jumping from internal medicine to surgery to pediatrics and once again back to internal medicine ,, It's about being ready to make a judgement in different areas of clinical knowledge ,

If u switched your study style to random timed u will notice a change in your score ,, this is the score that is close to your real level of performance.
