I'm averaging between 20-70s on my tests. I'm in the 35th percentile, I test in two weeks ... I already failed once. I don't know what to do. Has anyone else had scores like this before and passed !? I feel so discouraged at this point and don't know what to do anymore. I'm sitting at a overall 41 right now and I am almost through the whole entire Q bank 😩💔😭 ....

Don't look at the number of q's right or wrong and instead focus on the rationales of every single question whether you get the question right or wrong. If you commit to doing at least 200 questions a day (because you only have two weeks ) and really focus on understanding the rationales I am sure you will pass. Many people have failed while getting 60's and 70's on Uworld and many have passed by getting 40's. Numbers are irrelevant the content is key. Good luck!!

I only get a score of 44% to 58% scores in uworld, I was doing only 75 questions a day and I passed the NCLEX -RN. Focus on rationales and make them right, practice thousands of questions, repeat the incorrect answers again. You will be fine. :)

Yeah I can't stress that enough, the percentages don't mean anything, for example my friend got very high chance of passing and she failed ... it really doesn't matter. Understanding the questions and rationale is the best advice I can give.

That's what I'm scared of. I've read some people get high scores from Uworld and end up not doing well. I'm averaging about 36-80% and my overall average is 58 and I'm on 63rd percentile. I'm hoping Uworld will save me. I failed my first time. Hopefully I will do well and be done with this test. I do write down rationales and read them from time to time. Mostly questions that I did wrong or I do not understand. Have faith is all I can say. I still haven't set a date yet and it's been almost 2 months since my last attempt.

The scores does not matter ... read every single last rationale ... understand why the correct choice was right and the wrong choices were incorrect ... I was scoring between 30s and 60s ... first assesssment I got borderline and 2nd assessment I got very high chance of passing and I pass last Friday. I was really down and getting anxious but it all paid off all because I understood every rationale and I was able to increase my critical thinking with the knowledge I obtained from Uworld and Hurst ... you got this ... keep going :)
