Question Revise Uworld or Kaplan Qbank?

I have a little under three weeks left to my exam and I'm not sure how I should revise right now.

I completed Uworld last week. It took me 10 days and I still have a good bit of subscription time left. My final average was 81% random/unused/timed mode.

I completed Kaplan Q bank a few weeks before I started Uworld, and found it a bit harder to be honest, with more emphasis on factual recall. I did it subject-wise and didn't have time to revise the incorrect answers. My average was about 75%, higher in most subjects but brought down by genetics/microbial genetics and the like.

I'm going to take an NBME in a few days and whether I get a nasty score or a good one, I'm going ahead with my exam.

Anyway, my question to you all is, what next? I can either:

1)Repeat the entire Uworld with FA. 2)Repeat Uworld incorrect and marked material only, and the go back to kaplan q bank which I found harder.

One more thing: I feel that uworld doesn't really cover some topics. Microbial genetics for one, and more conspicuously, I noticed there weren't any questions on Hardy-Weinberg calculations. :O Aren't these important?!

Please advise!
