This is quite normal during the first read.. Make sure u start doing first aid with ur second read.. FA helps a lot in retaining material and will help in organizing material. We all have these phases during our first read where we feel that we dont remember anything.. so dont worry this is normal just make sure u start doing FA.. and remember the key to retaining material is revision revision and revision. Best of luck

These mcqs are a learning tool rather than an assessment tool
So try to learn more from them and know possible mistakes you might have in the real deal
Regarding assessment It's the NBMEs that matter most , and don't panic you are doing very well as you have finished the above mentioned materials

Good luck
