You know you said the main thing in the end of your post! "you are learning a lot"!!
I truly believed it does not matter how much you are scoring in QBanks, it's not a reflection for how we will do in the real exam. It is meant for us to use it as a learning tool and we should use it that way only. I know its easier said than done, but try not to look at the percentage score, but focus everything on figuring out where you went wrong and correcting those mistakes. I used UW to iron out my flaws and you are just in the starting phase of it. I guess it's better to do 15 wrong questions and learn from them instead of just doing 3 wrong and not learning from them.

And April is a while from now and keep focussing on the mistakes and analyze your performance graph after you have done 30 35 % of QBank

Good Luck!
