Question Qbank percentages first time or repeated questions!

Hi doctors,

My question is do you have to score at least in the 70th in Kaplan Qbank or 60th to 70th in USMLE world in the first time upon solving the questions ? Or you can solve them and solve again and see you your score finally!

Thank you.

If you are using qbanks to estimate your performance then the percentage should only reflect first time questions.

Repeated questions should not count to your performance, the reason is that there is very high chance you remember the question and so it wouldn't count as a real test for you.
