Default Low uworld scores

Hi guys , I started with uworld for the first time last week and have been doing questions on timed mode . After 13 blocks , my scores are consistently low averaging on 56 % . And this is depressing me big time , it will be great if you guys could share your experiences , like what percentage did you guys begin with and when did the scores finally start improving and most importantly how well the uworld scores relate to the real deal if anyone's already taken the exam,

Dude don't even get mad or anything, it simply is a LEARNING TOOL.

What really matters is that you LEARN from it and then the main thing to worry about is the uwsa which is a number that predicts how well you'll do on the actual thing.

Other than that keep learning.

same problem here too Areej27. i've done 30 blocks and am averaging 54%. This kept me low for couple of weeks. But now I'm just reading with revision plans when i finish the whole thing. I too have been said that low average doesn't matter as long as we learn from those low scores and not make those mistakes in the exam. So lets see...

egyptdoc66 is right.

One of the biggest mistake studying the qbank is focusing solely on the score and be depressed by it. And did not go over the mistakes carefully. It's also the biggest challenge for me. Try to set aside the worry, learn from your mistake and you will see your score begin to improve.

tips: work on you mistakes qs. try to analyze why you got it wrong: reading too fast and missed important clue; did not have a good grip on the subject (then fo through the books on that particular matter); any misconceptions; timing; panicking etc.

good luck!!
