Default Is this performance okay?

Okay, so my exam is a week later.
My UW first run score is 72%.
Kaplan Qbank is 65%.
Free 150 is 85%.

I aim to score 245+. Should I be worried?

These don't matter nearly as much as your NBME or uwsa assessments, which you haven't mentioned in your post.

I don't intend to give any NBMEs at this point, since I cannot afford to postpone my exam. Could you give your feedback based on my performance on question banks?

This is what leads to set backs for some people. u have your exam in a week Step- Step has already told you what to do. nobody can give u any feedback with the scores u are mentioning because u are doing a qbank it's not an assessment. free 150 is also not also not a good assessment per say, so do the right thing and take an NBME OR ill suggest doing UWSA now since u dont have time. then you can come for feedback. which you'll already have an idea about.

The exam is doable. Since I haven't taken the CK exam before this attempt I really can't compare my exam being different from the exams before or the so called changes that you've heard... because I dont have the baseline here to speak comparatively. The questions have almost the same concept as uworld qbank... about the same length... and you can narrow almost all of them down to two choices. Half the challenge is managing the time. You will have about one to two questions every block which you havent really come across in uworld or MTB... just have to exclude the unlikely answers and pick whatever you're left with and move on. I had one abstract, on which there were 3 follow up questions... and 1 drug ad question.
