Default More important questions on Step 1?

Whats is more important to succeed while taking the test?

Just took a recent NBME and had a lot of epidemiology and anatomy questions bad (up to the point of having all epidemiology wrong), but at the same time I also had 4 questions wrong that encompassed almost 4 or 5 categories each one and according to NBME those single questions gave almost 12 questions more wrong.

Which of this questions are more important to get focus on? The ones lowering your averages like epidemio or the 4-5 categorical ones? Again of course multiple category questions are harder and more difficult.

Thank you!
