Take an NBME. It's hard to assess you at this point through Kaplan qbank since I hear they test minutiae and that their questions are really hard.

Nonetheless, I think that a 60% may not be as bad at all considering you haven't started UW.

In general, I don't think you should use percentile on question bank sources to determine your level. Instead use them solely as a learning tool. NBME's and UWSA can give you the magical number you're close to.
