Warning! marking wrongs questions

guys if i answered a wrong question in the first time in UW right in the second time, will it be removed from my wrong questions?

so that when i create blocks only targeting wrong questions i don't get duplicates and repeated questions later on!!!

Wrong questions which you get right the second time gets removed from the incorrect q. But the wrong questions in the second time adds in incorrect q mode so u may get repeated qns in the other blocks which u had done wrongly second time.Its good coz the concepts gets reinforced.
If you want to avoid it what u can do is keep on making blocks of wrong questions and keep them suspending.In this case you will not get repeated qns which you got wrong the seond time.At the end when you complete all the suspended blocks,if you want to do uworld for the third time you can do again the wrong questions from the incorrect qns which u got wrong the second time. I know its a bit confusing but its doing fine for me.
