Question Kaplan Q-bank Percentage Q?

Hi Guys. Yesterday i began doing Kaplan Q-bank Random, Timed, Unused Mode.

So far i have done 3 Blocks of random questions. My percentages are:
65%-66%-70%.

i would like to know is it normal to score around this results. Cause in a block about 5-6 questions doesn't make sence at all


P.s. Haven't done FA jet. Planning to read it in july-august. In august i plan to do uw too

thanks in advance.

Hi i found Kaplan qBank very difficult comparing to UW, and much more difficult then the NBME.

your scores are fine, i dont know to which score you are aiming but in 1.5 months you can increase the results i think getting around 75% is good for ~240.

I completly agree about the WTF questions, i think kaplan is just trying to make it the most difficult qBank ever made. ~75% in kaplan i think corresponds to ~ +80% in usmle world. at least from my experience.

Thank you.

yes i was just wondering from where did they made these kind of questions

i'm planning to take exam in late september. 230-235 would be very nice score for me i plan to go over FA in july and august along with q-banks. yes i've been doing some uw offline tests and scored around 70-75 in them.

p.s. how do you think should i annotate kaplan qbank explanations in FA ?
