Don't worry about how you are scoring in uworld...just worry about understanding the concepts which you are being tested about...my uworld percentage isn't that good either (its about 55 %) but i started out very low (around 40s) just make sure your scores are increasing steadily

Uworld is used as a learning tool, don't make it about assessment...leave the nbmes and uworld exam as your assessment

Yeah I had the same, I got 83% in USMLE World (Randomly and Timed from first time) but before that I did USMLE World (Offline).

I did UWSA (one night before my real exam which is a big mistake) and my score was 166 (which is Failed) then I canceled my exam and I will study for the exam again.

You have to know the concepts of the questions. Don't be panic and solve questions as much as you can and understand the concept of each question.

Good Luck
