USMLEWorld USMLE World Low Score

Hello there,

I am planning on taking my step in December. Currently i am working on Uworld. I am so embarrased by my performance on it. i hvae been consistently getting 45%. I have done all of Kaplan Lecture Notes. And this is my first time going thru uworld. I don't know what to do. I am really scarred. After uworld i plan on doing DIT. Then NBME's after that.
Please someone let me now if i should review more and then do uworld.
I dont know what to do..

I would recommend taking an NBME and see where you stand. You are almost @ 50% mark on u-world so it's time for NBME.

how you guys are doing UW?
many people do UW subject wise after finishing the subject
so its fresh in their head so they get s higher score
another strategy is before doing UW for a particular subject some will go over FA or that subject and then take test
so you can try one of these ways
UW is a learning tool
so dont get bogged out by your scores
i know how you feel
but many people lie about their scores
you will be fine just keep working on it
ALL THE BESt
