UWSA 1 score of 234, 65% correct, 22nd percentile?

4/1/2017 3:05:19 PM
Hey all,

I just finished UWSA 1 and got a score of 234, 65% correct, but for some reason only 22nd percentile.. Does that make sense? Am I missing something?
I will be very happy with 234 on the real exam as I only want to pass, but don't know how the 22nd percentile thing makes sense..

Any input?

I'm on the same boat. I got a 240, with 68%, and 28th percentile. I was wondering the same thing.

The real scores in CK are higher than in Step 1 and for that reason the percentil could be lower than expected but not that low. I took my CK recently and my score in UW was highly predictive (almost exactly the same). Dont be worried but the percentil in UW just pay attention to the score. Just one recomendation...be comfortable with the time because in the real test the questions were much much longer than the UW questions

Thanks for the input!
I know step1 score are much lower than step 2 but the percentile thing just doesnt add up for me.. worried maybe my score was a miscalculation or something..

And about the timing.. unfortunately I finish each block right on the second.. so not looking forward for the real exam.. interestingly this was not an issue on step 1 where i easily had 5-10 min at the end of each block..

I think in UW the p is not real. As I told you my score in the real test was the same as in UW and the UW also gave me a p around 22-28 (I don't remember the exactly number). In the real test the p 50 is around 240-245 so, with 234 you should be around p 45 may be.
The questions in CK are easier but longer than in step 1. In the step 1 UW I also finished every block around 5 min before and in the real one I had enough time to review my answers and finished every block between 3-7 min before. In UW ck I finished every block around 2 min before but in real one I missed 12-15 questions because didn't have time.

Is it just me or did the percentiles just drastically shift? A few weeks ago the same percentage of around 63% showed me a percentile in the 60s and now its in the 40s.
