if thats your first qbank right after first pass of MTBs or kaplan lecture..then thats not a bad average. looking over posts from last year and speaking to ppl who have done CK, I find UWorld average tend to be abit higher if you have done other qbanks prior to starting UW. Kaplan, Rx, consult etc. so if you are not pressed for time, maybe you want to do other qbank first. then again, plenty of ppl do really well on CK with just UWorld + MTBs. and your UWorld score should steadily increase as you go. ANyways, you are still early in the game, you will be alright. I got my exam next week, now I am worried

Thank u for ur response
First of all good luck I hope ull ace this exam

I find this exam to me more stressful than step 1,
In step 1 I had fun, I wasn't anxious
in This exam from some reason im very anxious.
This exam has some evil force that I cant control
Guess its because im a little bit tired after the step 1
this is my only qbank, maybe ill take kaplan qbank, depends on how much stamina iv left and how much i want to continue to suffer.

anyway Have good luck m8
