Default exam in a month,urgent help needed!

hey guys, 'm studying for step 1 and my exam's in a month. I took nbme about 2 months ago and got very low score and now 'm so scared to get low score that i haven't taken nbme . I have been preparing since a year now and the problem with me is that i keep forgettting what i studied . I have already revised kaplan 4 times but while doing questions 'm not confident at all so end up getting low scores.

So,I wanted to ask if first aid and Q's of uworld and kaplan q's r enough to pass for step 1? I have lost all hope to get high scores now. my only goal is to pass. Can anyone please help ...in extreme frustration.

I'm still preparing for my test too, so I'm not the best person to give advice, but from what I know, I think you should try to do as much FA & UW as u can in the next 2-3 weeks & take an NBME to see where u stantd b4 ur test day. If u'r happy with ur score, go ahead & sit for the test, otherwise, u can postpone the test date. Best of luck & hope all goes great with u!

I think u made a mistake by reading kaplan 4 times , the point of reading kap is to understand what written in FA so now u have to stick to FA read it understand it then solve UW then take NBME
being short of time I don't now if kap qbank 'll benefit you
If u just started those now u should postpone
