Default UWorld Self Assessment timed out in 3rd block

Hi all,

I just tried UWSA 1 today.. Everything was going fine until I hit my 3rd block.. 10 seconds into it, it told me I was out of time... so it made me move on to the 4th block. I thought it was a glitch so I kept on going..

So I completed the 1st, 2nd and 4th blocks. And didn't even attempt 1 question on the 3rd block. I got 52%, 48% and 59% of questions correct on the blocks I did complete.. 0% on 3rd block. I ended up with a 320 and 169 prediction
The bars on my Score Report show Borderline performance in 6 areas.. But the width of the bars are HUGE (ie... they go all the way to the baseline). So I guess this can be understood to be similar to a confidence interval?

I'm aiming for a passing 197 score....

So my question is... if I completed the 3rd block with about 50% questions correct - is this good enough for a passing score?

(I've contacted USMLE World, but haven't heard back from them yet). Hopefully they can let me do Block 3.

Thakns for your help. I take the test in 1 week.

Update 2 hours later: E-mailed UWorld, and within 30 minutes they got back to me and said they put 60 minutes on the clock for Block 3. Allowed me to do the 3rd block. Great customer service!

Got 70% correct on the 3rd block... ended up with a 209 estimation.. I have 1 week left so I'll study hard and I should be okay...

Thanks anyways. Good luck everyone!
