USMLEWorld Is UWSA for CK Underpredicts!

Dear friends
I had studied 6 months , uworld overall 61 % and now i took the uworld self assessment
I got 188 ( it's the three digit score) , that makes it a 76 or 77 three digit score , i am surprised , since i really need to reboost myself ? or Uworld self assessment is a bad assessment test for step2CK
I really need your help guys

Thanks a lot

From what i heard it under predicts but not by that large a margin. So that score means you need to do more work. Find ur weaknesses according to ur scores and focus there.

As a side note your aggregate is wholly dependant on how you studied if like me you do questions unit wise after reading a chapter/unit The scores on average tend to be higher.If you do it untimed again it gives higher scores. And if you redo questions well then ofcourse you will score higher getting a higher total aggregate percentage.

My personal thought of uworld was not as an assesment tool but as a learning tool. I learn from the book the exact details of a disease but from the uworld questions i would learn a good way of how that info would be given in a question format. and ofcourse it does have lots of info thats not covered by whatever book you are using so those points should be noted.
