USMLEWorld Variability in UW score

Hi all

I've been doing UW for about a week now and my average score increased steadily from 60 to 62%. The thing is my score varies, and I want to make sure if this variation is within normal limits or not! it's about 15%, as my score is always in the range of 54-70 ..

Is this normal?
and another question : My score in surgery and OBGYN is above 75%. Should I stop reviewing these materials and depend on UW for them only ?

Thank you for your continuous help

I haven't taken the exam yet either so I don't know how helpful this will be but I've been getting 80's on obs gyn and surgery so I'm assuming I know enough. I'm just focusing on medicine and peds at the moment and I'll review obs gyn and surgery again at the end. You could try the same method.
