Colombia weird progresion curve

ok 1 have month left
my pregresion have been like this
started uworld at 65% ended whit 72% when completed BUT
my performance graph was like a torsade de points ( some test of 65% and some others on 87%)

NBME 15 (havent done uworld that time) :224

UWSA -1 (After completion of 25% of uworld): 248

NBME 16 (after completion of 50% of uworld): 241

UWSA -2 (after completion of 100% uworld): 248 at this one i did my best
i focus and was concentrated.

NBME 17 (after reading all my uworld notes ) : 232 at this one i was strongly nervous and distracted, was overcheking facebook and instagram in between question, but i have to admit, there was a lot of neuroanatomy and question about the mechanism of calcium in sarcoidocis/multiple myeloma, than was like WTF (neuroanatomy is not usually my weakness spot) and always lacking time, feeling like clock was going to fast or i was wasting time.

NBME 13 (same day as 17) 247 , this time i really focus, didnt get distract turn off my smartphone, take a glass of wine for the nervous (instead of other energy drink ) . but the topics somehow looked more familiar, and answerable.

What concern me about all this is the strong variability of my results, also
even when i though my weaks areas were biochem and anato. my NBMES and UWSA show strong variability in other subjects, like 1 star in behav in one exam and below the medium in other. 3 stars in basic principles in one test and medium-below in other.

im not feeling sad or like i lost all hope, just really stressed and confused about this results.
