USMLEWorld UW First Time Percentage Trick!

Just want to know how some people score very high in uworld first time especially those above 75%. Is it that they have done the offline questions already or they have very good concepts what is the trick guys? Most poeple struggle to get pass 65%. Aside that u see that wen u get a question wrong and u look at the percentage of poeple who got it right ur heart jumps out of ur chest like pomp.
Does somebody identify with me?

It becomes an overkill when u do it timed and random and afterwards they slap u with a low percentage. I know uworld percentage is not so important but man, it helps to build ur confidence.

Hey Although I havent used Uworld Perse yet, I have been using the kaplan qbank for the time being, as far as my expirience goes your % will be determined almost entirely by solid knowledge.

This is because the questions vary so much that you will rarely be able to answer a question, becasue you have seen it before (doesnt mean it doesnt happen, but its not something you cant count on).

For example: When I did my first physiology round I was getting 60-62% correct, however I noticed I hadnt finsihed hematology so I was getting all those questions wrong all the time, after finishing it I was getting 68-70% correct.

So yeah I can say that the most important factor is base knowledge, If you are getting alot of questions wrong then you need to study that subject more, simple

Don't look too much into percentages, Uworld is a learning tool not an assessment tool. Go through all the wrong questions thoroughly and make sure you understand the concepts and will not repeat those mistakes in the future. Like a friend of mine says, "getting an incorrect answer in Uworld is a blessing, it helps you not make the same mistake in the future again"

As far as assessment goes, use UWSA or NBMEs for that.

That being said, most people who get more than 80% are definitely doing it after doing another Qbank or repeating Uworld again. But that is the case with MOST not all of them. Some people will score 80%+ in their first pass of UWorld but they will be in a minority.
