Hey all
My problem in one word is : inconsistency!
I started Kaplan 20 days earlier and now i solved 66% of the questions. While my average performance is rising steadily ( first 7 blocks I had an average of 57 as compared to an average of 63 in the last 7 blocks ), I now get some bad blocks every now and then, scoring as low as 50

All in all I feel I am getting better in mastering the exam, but is this inconsistency normal? And are my average scores reassuring ?

My exam is in two months, and I am planning to do WU after this

It's normal

Your average score is doing well. You should be on your way towards 95+ in the exam.

Your inconsistency is completely normal if it is within the 10-15% range of difference. If it is more than that, like one block making 70% and the next block is 40% then it might indicates gaps in your knowledge.

Try to see if there's a pattern. Like for example the morning blocks or the evening blocks are consistently low or high ...etc. The pattern might give you a clue as to the reason why you are doing high or low at certain times. Also see the break down of the analysis. It might be that you are weak in certain subjects that you need to revise and enhance more.

Thanks .. you are great as always :)

i did notice a pattern .. I just did the math : the average score of the first blocks I do every day is 56% .. the average of all other blocks is 66% !!

Is it a concentrating problem ?
