USMLEWorld 80's & 90's in UWORLD, anybody?

does anybody score 90+ in uworld? i dont mean total UWORLD AVG LOL, just one single block,
even if only during the last few days of preparation... has anybody reached steady 80's at least in the last few blocks?

asking just out of curiosity... coz scoring 60's is my "playstation" :P

hmmm...

That's an interesting point in here actually...

Consistency - that what UW is about...
First time I was scoring around 65 most of the time and rarely single test scores would fall to 55-56. I do not remember having scored more than 75 on the first round.

So my biggest concern always was - what if I will be asked questions from the UW part that I never got right (remaining 35-40%).

Most of the students are around 60% on their first round of UW, so remaining 40% are those extra points that get you to 240+

Very freakin interesting...

thanx but now its all over for me......preparing for step 2 CK....haha

actually I did UW subject wise......I got 75% on average after first round.......

my correct answers ranged from 31 to 38 out of 46 during the blocks.....one or 2 times I got 29 correct also.....haha

UW has many questions directly picked up from FA......If u know FA very well, getting 80+% is not a big thing on UW.......!!!

I remember a few days before my exam on random timed mode I had one block that was 86% and one that was 94%, but then the next two were 57% and 68%, haha. It just seemed that I knew the material in those two random blocks. It didn't happen consistently, unfortunately. Those two were anomalies.
