Default urgent advice needed!

Hey guys,
I have two weeks until my exam. My nbmes are:
Nbme 12 - 207 (1 month ago)
Nbme 15 - 218 (two weeks ago)
Free 150 - 77% correct (today)
Goal: anything over 220 and I will be happy

What should i do during these last two weeks? I've reviewed FA about 4 times. and i did uworld twice. I feel like i still need to master down little things in fa BUT everyone keeps saying focus more on uworld mixed blocks. What should i do? Should I do mixed blocks..and while reviewing each question, look up that corresponding section in fa? help please!! Thanks!

maybe concentrate on your weaknesses and go over marked questions from uworld. since you have completed uworld twice you will know where your strengths are as well as weaknesses. Revise FA again if you can.

questions are always great so if you haven't done uworld mixed, you should definitely try it out. Make sure to read the other answer choices explanations. I believe people told you to do uworld mixed blocks because that is how the step is. All mixed together into blocks. Get that block timing perfected so you have spare time to revise questions before you click "end block"

Not sure if you annotated your first aid with uworld information. If you have already, you can easily refer to First aid.

good luck!
