Listening UWorld Percentage @ 72%; Should I do another Qbank?

Hi!!

I am a 3rd yr medical student from India. I am planing to write my step 1 this October, in around 2 and a half months!
I've completed the videos and lecture notes of Kaplan and Goljan for path and right now I am doing my uworld qbank. completed like 30% of it and my percentage now is 72% wt a percentile of 79%..is that good for now? how much should I be getting?

Also my plan for now is to do my 2nd reading of Kaplan once I finish uworld. also a few NBMEs and the uworld assessment and of course, First aid!..

Should I subscribe to any other qbank too? Kaplan qbank or USMLERx? I am not sure if I have enough time, max maybe 10 days.

Your suggestions would really help

hey, thats a decent score. I myself prapared for it during my 3rd year and took it this year in final year. You can easily break into a 75-80% range in UW which is very nice.
Just keep annotating your FA with UWorld and you will be fine. Reviewing the block is more important than doing it. No need to do another Q bank

Take 4 NBMEs, the latest ones that is 7, 11, 12, 13. 13 was the toughest for me but it was also the most predictive for me.

Thats fine and completely normal.

Keep reading FA. I suppose there must be many topics u havent revised yet to select only those subjects and subdivisions which you have revised. I did it that way only. Every 2-3 days i added a new system in my block once i was done with it. That way your scores might improve.

Good luck
