The average in USMLERx is 64 regardless if you do subjects based or random. I don't Rx calculates the actual average like Kaplan does.

Yea, I would just use Rx for learning purposes. I know there are many different ways to calculate your score but the only realistic one compared to the real exam is NBME. Even UWSA over-predicts at times, which is useful if u need a confidence booster AFTER you're already passing IMO. I don't think anything really calculates properly. All I know is that for passing u should be scoring at least 60-65% on UWorld to be on the safe side and by at least 10 points on NBME. Good luck!
