Anything above 70% on UW is great and you are around 80% which is excellent.
If I was getting that kind of score on UW then I will prepone my test for tomorrow.
You are already set for a 280+ ..............what else do you want.......... a 300 ?

Individual block score means nothing..........it's only the cumulative score which matters.
and don't get me wrong........Kaplan Q Bank is a good study aid (if you can tolerate the regularly annoying "pissoff" questions)

well hitman i told you it fluctuates widely .even i scored low in many blocks.i havent given any tests.but i strongly believe the final exam is an entirely new day.jus because u do well in uw doesnt guarantee u a high score and vice versa.i have seen n number of such cases. so lets just prepare to the max we can.good luck!

sonu agarwall...well described....dont know why it fluctuates.....but mine is a little constant around 81-86 and several 90's...i posted this cos i did two blocks yesterday and scored 77 and 75...i have 20% of uworld left..my grades should be increasing!!!...its so sad.. .....all together!!!.


In the begining i started with scores in 70's ...but this should not be happening towards the end!!!!....its so annoying...makes ur confidence drop...
My overall average has been steady on an 83%...and i heard even that doesnt guarantee much....i honestly preferred studying for step 1....This step 2 is way crazy!!

83 doesnt guarantee much?

Well stats say it does guarantee a top score and still everyday is a ifferent day and thats the prob now.

but it is definitely a boost to ur confidence and i too had a similar experience en i was done with 70-80 % uw. I felt i had all difficult questions at once..some uw trick??god knws

btw wat percentile is 83% ?surely 97?!

I don't know if its only me but for step 1 and 2ck the first test i took i scored 80+ on the test.. Then after that my performance decreased till midway and then started rising again..I noticed the same for step 1 and 2 ck. I think the difficulty of questions are progressive after each test. Also the avg score of test takers on each test was around 57 at the beginning but increased to 63-64 towards the end.
