Question An IMG. Need advice.

Hello guys,
My exam is on March 05. In November, NBME Form 7, I got only 240/160. So, I postponed my exam from December to March. Now, a month ago, I got 320/179 in Form 5. 2 weeks ago, I took Form 11 and scored 420/203. That was a really good improvement in 2 weeks' time. I went through UWQBank, FA and WebPath. Hence, I guess was the improvement from 320 to 420 in 2 weeks.
Now, I'll be giving Form 12 soon. Please tell me what should I study now? FA would be fine? I take 3 days to revise FA fully. So should I keep doing it?
Is this score OK? Being an IMG, will I be able to clear it?

Hi! Don't get angry...
Everyone is busy studyn and sometimes we answer/reply to these posts when we are taking breaks or see the posts in our email inboxes... And when ppl keep posting more threads your thread goes to below and we can no longer see it as those BOLD DARK BLUE ones which are the new posts... It's ok to post again to get ppls attention Anyways...
You are doing a good job.. You have improved alot ever since the beginning. I think you should compare those old NBMES you have taken and see where you went wrong.. Find your weak areas and study those areas first.. And then keep reviewing FA.
Good luck
