Default Uworld bad performance

Hello guys .. I m kinda freaking out ..
I started UWorld system wise after MTB 2 ,
Cardio 1st block 39%
2nd block 43%
What else should I do to improve my performance or I should just accept it..This is me
And I couldn't catch up with the time , on step1 I didn't phase time management or failing issues
Any Opinion will be highly appreciated , thank you very much

I was in the same place as you. I'd recommend two options:

1. Keep at it! UW is going to be a LEARNING experience for you, so don't pay attention to the percentage whatsoever. By the end of it, you will see an improvement (not necessarily a super-high percentage). Even if you don't improve a lot, you'll have definitely learned a lot. Then try an NBME to prove how much you learned.

2. Get more background knowledge. MTB2 is severely deficient in content. It's not a BAD book in itself, it's just not a complete book. You could do Kaplan or some other more thorough/exhaustive books, then go back to UW.

Both options work, it just depends what you think will work best for you
