How much you improved when you did the second qbank?

-This Poll is designed for those preparing for step 2 CK and were subscribed
to both Kaplan Qbank and UW

-The aim of the poll is to show the difference in improvement during the transition from Kaplan Qbank to UW or vice versa (Whatever has been done first)

-The options were divided into units of improvement each = 5 points on the 3 digits scale

Example : If you got 220 on the 3 digits scale in Kaplan Qbank and then you got 240 on the 3 digits scale in UW then the difference would be 240-220=20 points , meaning you improved your performance by 20 more points

I'm aiming at calculating the mean so we can predict how much we can improve our performance in general if we took one after another.
