That's probably because you need to brush up your subjects from the review books. Seriously FA is just for revising the info. It's the review books which actually need to be understood thoroughly to get that coveted score we all are chasing.

And then to harp upon the same phrase,"It's not as much about the score, as it is about the stuff you need to understand FROM the Uworld."
You'll be on a different level once you are done with Uworld.

Your ability to rule out wrong answers means u have made big time head way!
Anytime u forget concepts no matter whether u have read the subject before or even done the question before u are at increased risk of getting things wrong.
Infact there is only a thin line between passing above 250 and getting below 200. The key is repetition, repetition and repetition. The info is volatile man!
