USMLEWorld How to pump up scores on uworld?

hie
I'm almost thru 50% of the questions on uworld..
my exam is in mid Jan.. so that's exactly a month away

my problem is that since the time i have started uworld.. my scores are static.. i get the same scores in all the tests with the mean/mode being around 65%..

how do i push up my scores..
of late now i think my knowledge is actually fading out cos im doing only questions but have no time to redo the theory cos of the only 1 month left..

today i did 2 tests and got only 60% in both of them.. so getting scared now.
I do all tests in random timed mode of 46 questions each.
have done Kaplan Qbank too.

any advice will be welcome..

please help me on how i can up my scores on uworld.

Go to "overall performance" and look where (specificly where) is it that you are having the problem (Exp. biochemistry, microbiology... etc, etc.). For those topics, I think you should read the explanation (slow and easy... do not rush here), even a quick review of FA would also do. However, I've read that having 65% is good enough to have 250 in step 1 so I wouldn't worry to much.

Maybe this link can help you to cheer-up and relax a bit:

thank you mexito...
but i donot think 65=250

its more like around 225-230
iv already failed this exam once and hence need a 240+ score to make it thru to residency

I would think that a 65% is way above average.

I don't how accurate this calculator is but it's worth a try:
