Default forgetting every thing

Hi
My step 1 exam is going to be next week. My program is to study pharmacology and biochemistry once more during this week. Also I want to have a look to CTs and CXRs and practice biostatics and do nbme 13 and 16. But at this time I think I forgot EVERYTHING. I wish I could study all the FA again but I don't have time for that. I am totally FREAKING OUT. ...
Is it something normal which happens to all before exam?
My nbme 15 score is 228 which I did last week.also I did uwsa this week which I got 252 in both of them. I know uwsa over estimates the score and my nbme score did not satisfied me. I lost my self confidence. Is it something normal?

Salam

If you are happy with ur NBME score,review pharmacology and microbiology in last week and do whatever that makes u calm.dont over stress with the stuff that u can't remember,as the exam is mostly about the concepts.

If you are unhappy with ur score,postpone ur exam ,good or bad,NBMEs are highly predictive of real exam score.

UWSA over predict a lot ! For me 14 scores but I've seen ppl that got 25 score less than UWSA.

Thats alot to do in the last week of prep. Giving nbmes at this stage is tricky as well as it can affect your confidence before the exam. If you have an option of delaying the exam, then take another nbme to check if you have improved or not and base your decision of when to take the exam according to that.
