Help Step 1 in 2 weeks!!!

I have my step1 in 2 weeks and was wondering if I could hit above the 220 mark.

So far I've gone through the Kaplan live lecture program and read the Kaplan notes once, did DIT, went through FA 2x so far, did 70% of the Kaplan Qbank, and will be finished with UWorld in about 3 more days.

I did NBME 1 before the start of my studying and got 380/192
Did NBME 12 3 weeks ago and got 430/205
Did NBME 7 today and got a 480/217

I've been doing Qbank since the start of my studying and my overall in Kaplan is 64 and my overall in world right now is 59, but this past week my World scores have all been 65% +

I'm on a limited time frame and have to take the step before the end of June. I'm shooting for above a 220, do you guys think it's possible? And any recommendations for what I should really focus on these last 2 weeks?

Any help is truly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Hi Andy,

I can see a gradual improvement in your scores which is a very good sign and ur nbme 7 score is near to ur target score.All you have to do is focus on ur weak areas and do as many revisions as possible.If possible and you have time do UW marked and incorrect questions again

thanks examsmasher, i'll try to go over the incorrect and marked questions when i finish uworld. As i'm getting closer to finishing the bank, i find myself taking less time to make notes, because some questions seem repeated but in just a different way. So I don't think reviewing the incorrect ones will take me that long.
