Kaplan Medical Kaplan step 2 CK qbank and exams correlation

I have some questions about the Kaplan CK question bank.

It is stated that to pass you have to get 65% score on the question bank. However, the average score of other Kalpan users is around 56%, so this will mean that on average the Kaplan users don't pass the USMLE step 2 CL? And what does a score of 63% on the kaplan qbank step 2 correlate to with the real usmle?

Furthermore, I would like to know how many question blocks are the simulated exam 1 and 2.
2.
Are both exams the same as the real usmle step 2 ck, which means 9 hours, 360 questions?

And what does the self assessment score of 69%?

Their average is 56%. You need to know how many of them scored less than 65%.
I'd say maybe 50%.

This 50% does not really reflect those who failed the exam because most of those students go and do USMLE World afterward and they improve a lot after finishing the Kaplan Qbank.

The CK exam is composed of 42 questions per block multiplied by 9 blocks, you do the math.
