I would say don't take Qbanks as assessment tools. Qbanks are meant to be for learning even if you get a qn wrong just grab the concept and move ahead. Also many students who have solved Kap Qbank say they get low scores but here again I will say take it as learning tool it is not a good predictor of your performance.

My friend we all find ourselves in this situation in divers ways but u know what! This partly means u are now getting most of the concepts right in mind. So don't worry. Use this qbank to get the concepts after that solve nbme and let's see if u won't do better. Then jump to uworld after another read of FA. Have u read FA at all? I guess u shd read it multiple times.
Remember most members rate uworld higher than Kaplan qbank so if u don't have time then I suggest u do uworld instead. But if time and money not a worry then go ahead as I have said.
