Default plateau on uworld

hello guys
i want your advice on how to overcome the plateau i am in, i am getting between 50-55 % , my cumulative performance is 53 % , and i still have 45% of the qbank left, should i keep on doing the qbank or should i stop and do mtb 2 and 3 THEN go back to uworld??

If you're not noticing an upward trend in your score from annotating uworld alone, then I would suggest referring to a book like MTB, while solving questions along the way.
A lot of my friends went through this problem, and their scores shot up to 70-80% after properly studying the material in conjunction with uworld.
I'm also one of those people. I can't learn from questions as well as I do from books.
Try using USMLE Secrets for quick review as well.

Lastly, don't treat uworld as an assessment tool, especially if your exam's not anytime soon. Learn from it. A lot of the questions aren't easy
