Help How can I improve in 12 days

I don't know what to do. I did NBME 11 today and got a 186!! I already postponed my exam 1 month and my slot period ends this month and my exam is on the 30! I did UWSA1 last month and had the same score!
How can I improve in 12 days?
I can't postpone!

You can read FA and revise UW notes if you have made them. Do another NBME 3-4 days before the exam, if you don't see any improvement then don't take the exam.
All you lose is a few $$.

hey here is the best advice...

whenever you read FA, make sure u read it very actively... i mean talking it out loud. Try to focus on each word.

Also can you please forward me uworld notes At Usukfriend@gmail.com

Thanks.

pls postpone

its a hard decision.but one month of hard prep can easy put you in 220-230 slot in nbmes and in main exam.
getting a good score is way more imp than an extension.
if i were you i will not think a sec but to postpone.
postpone take one full day break .do everything but not to think of usmle.then make a solid plan and get to work,

goodluck

Well its a bad idea realy to download this from internet bcoz when u jot down anything with ur own mind and hands working it sticks for a long time in ur memory..well if u have time please make ur notes..and if u r short of time well then its okay...seen the version of notes..some 130 odd pages..its gud but not really exhaustiveGL
