Question 52% avg on Uworld with 5 weeks to go.... Need guidance


I have a 52% cumulative (I've done about 350 questions) with 5 weeks (roughly) till my test. I'm doing Doctors in Training lectures (3 x a day) and looking over FA. I took a break from UW b/c honestly it was freaking me out when I didn't know a bunch of questions in a row.. I'm gonna try to focus on FA and DIT lectures and start up UW in the next few days. Also, I'm gonna start listening to Goljan lectures if I have any extra time in the day after the concentrated DIT lectures. Any other suggestions? To be honest, unlike most people here, I just want to pass and am scared I'm going to fail (yes, another anxiety-ridden med student >.>), other than that I was hoping to get a high enough score to get into peds... Let me know what you would do if you were in my situation please. Also, please let me know if 5 weeks is enough time to get my scores up. Thanks (First time poster)

-Med student currently in the loopy stage of studying for step 1.

Edit: Also, are step 1 questions easier than UW questions by any chance? Thanks.
