Default ADVICE! Should I hasten my test ??

Hello everyone , I am a medical student from Greece who has studied for step 1 since May and I need advice on if I should reschedule my test ! My test is at December 22 ( around 6 weeks from now ) . I finished Kaplan qbank random timed with a cum of 80% a week ago and did NBME 11 online with a 262-660 score . I bought uworld and have so far done 8 blocks and get over 84% consistently . Now my question is : Should I skip uworld , just read FA for a couple weeks and get over with it or just keep my schedule(Uworld for 3-4 wks , then pure FA memorizing) ? I feel very strong on concepts but am kinda behind on the memorizing part ( anatomy , hereditary syndromes , drugs etc..) and the horror stories that I read on step 1 experiences make me kinda insecure. My aim is anything 250+

Thanks to everyone in advance

u r on the right track
continue doing u world, its the most important source of study after FA, u just cant afford to ignore it even if ur scoring high on nbme, try to finish it in 4weeks. and also continue FA meanwhile,i know it will be difficult but only 6weeks remaining, so do as much hard work as u can. also take nbme 15,16,17nbme on equal intervals.

plz tell me how much did u score on kaplan physio n behavioral sci qbank?
did u find them odd n difficult?

Thanks for the advice ! I don't remember exactly , but physio was my strong point so above 80%. I found some physio q's really twisted but it was possible to think through them if u spared enough time from other ''rapid-answer'' questions . As far as beh sci is concerned , ethics were a little weird for me because its completely different here , but after some q's you get the hang of it..

The questions I hated where some micro bs where you had to identify bugs based on obscure enzymes/reactions not written of FA . Hope it helps
