They recently changed the percentiles, they brought them down significantly. Dont see the percentiles. your percentage is very good. do nbme and UWSA to judge yourself

If in UW 67 correct = 55 percentile... Does this mean people in general are getting 90's in UW? I didn't know it was possible! lol! Even during my UW second pass back in step 1, my correct % score was only in the low 80's.

It was recently changed (1 month ago), i think it's because, lots of people do UW a second time, and their % correct answers go up.

Default Percentiles are biased!

yes do not completely rely on percentile because many people do UW online after having done offline subject wise , i know few personally. So i wont completely believe in percentile unless percentage is bad too.
