Hi. I think your score is good and it's better since you are using FA simultaneously. That should help. I'm doing UW too. I'm scoring between 40 and 60 % too. I am a little worried too if the score is good enough. But hopefully, with revision this will improve. Best of luck to you! Keep posting about your progress.

True. Pathology is so important for integrating the concepts. Btw, which book are you reading for it? I read Kaplan first, then following the advice bought Goljan and read that. Goljan is way better because apart from Patho, it helps integrate even Biochem and Micro. This really goes a long way when doing the questions as I'm now finding out doing the questions. Hope this helps. Good luck to you.

well, 60% is above average, i think anything over 50% means you got many of the concepts going and just need some extra work on the details~
I guess almost everything can be found on the FA, and you should probably go through it a few more times focusing on concepts on the FA that you don't quite understand. 70 days can mean a great difference!
