Help It's taking me too long to review

Hello every1.

So I have about one month left for my actual exam. I finished u world with 53 -55% average. and made gud and lot of notes.
I took 2 months to finish u world. i also read first aid 1 and half times. now i plane to take UWSA and NBMEs and also review my notes and first aid. but its taking me a bit long to review.

How should I go about now till my exam?
