2 blocks say absolutely nothing about your performance.
Were they timed? Untimed? Mixed? Subject specific?
You should:
Read the explanations provided and UNDERSTAND why you got the question wrong.
Do way way way more blocks.
At the end of the test you get analysis - as which areas were weak, so you will know what to focus on.
And don't hang on too much on individual qbank percentages. They can be - even with those estimators waay of when it comes to guessing real score. You wanna know where you at? Do an ONLINE NBME. That should give you an idea.
