Default Sequential questions in UWorld

I have noticed that in UWorld Step 3 there are a lot of sequential type questions. But only a limited number of them lock your answers and don't permit you to change your answers once you have selected an answer and moved on to the second or third part of the question. The vast majority let you cycle through all the parts of the question with or without answering and let you change answers once you have moved on. This is different from the Step 1 and Step 2 UWorld questions which locked your answers. Is there a reason most of the Step 3 sequential questions are like this? I remember when I took Step 1 and 2 the sequential questions would lock just like in UWorld. Is Step 3 different?

I'm also kind of freaking out since my test is in a month and I'm scoring an average of 65% and haven't started CCS yet.

That is a right phenomenon - most of the sequential questions allow you to go back and change the answer, first, I thought perhaps UW software is not completely developed yet because Step 3 UW allows you to do snapshots too ( less secured, which is actually better) Later asked another friend who recently took the exam, she confirmed that is true, but not all question will have this new feature.
