Help Getting a 75% in u world but only 68% in kaplan..

hi
i completed my revision and took my Kaplan final exam back at my training center and got only a score of 68% it was a 8 hour exam just like the real one, my score in uworld currently is 75 % (70%completed), can anyone please tell which of my score is reliable, because Kaplan Qbank is supposed to be easier than the u world, (also pacing was bit hard with Kaplan because connection kept going down and time was lost loading each question) pls guys still if anyone could reply would be grateful...

75% in UW and 68% in Kaplan is not a huge difference.

Keep doing Kaplan and am sure your score will go up closer to that of UW.

Recently, Kaplan have made changes to their qbank and they are making it harder and harder.
