Default What's a decent UW percentage?

I'm at 63% after 5 UW blocks and I feel like this could be around 70 if I stopped making careless mistakes. Is this a decent score?

I know it's a learning tool but my goal is 245+ so trying to score high in UW for personal satisfaction

I started around 63% and ended with 75%

I think you'll go up

I don't know how this correlates cause I'm still waiting for my grades.

I have seen people get 250+ on 74+ and 235+ with 76%, so there seems to be a lot of variability

Hey my exam is is June too but my UW percentage is still in the low 50s, can't extend my eligibility again - what are you using to study? This test is seeming harder than step 1...

More than 70% equals more than 240. I had 71% and got 248.

Dr AGA is it 70% first time, random, timed? if so you are doing very well.

My advice for uworld:
First time take notes, and check all questions.

Second time do all checked questions, in this round if you have any question you get correct but still hesitate about the right answer check it.
Do all incorrect ones and do the same if you have some doubts about the right answer in some Qs (check it).

Third round, do the checked you still have and some incorrect ones left.

Then take NBME 4, according to your results then focus on your weakest areas for example obgyn and psychiatry, and start doing all the Qs in this topics on Uworld. This last stage you can do it in 4 days.

Then you will be ready to get a very good score for sure.

HIiiii


I NEED help badly... so I have my exam in less than 18 days its on the 36th may but i'm trying to find dates and push it up to 31st may as its the end of my eligibility.

I am still working on finishing MTB 2 and 3 and did KLN for IM and PEDs.

I have started UWorld simultaneously and this was my score and am a little worried
overall score is 58 percent but i fall in 25th percentile and have done 15% of the bank so far. I am aiming to finish it off in 10 days along with the MTB /(OBGYN, Surgery, and Psyc)


I did NBME 4 weeks earlier form 4: 360/196 was not prepared at all and i did UWSA as well got 58% in that that was 1.5 months back.


Any suggestions and advices will be helpful. :'(

P.S. i havent done my step1 yet.

My advice is not to take the test, practice more questions and read more MTB 2 and 3.

NMBE 4 results are not convincing.

Dont worry you will do well if you continue at the same pace.
