Question Is there any way I can improve my score in a week?

Hi fellas,
My exam is in week and I don't know what to do. I just took nbme 12 and scored exactly the same as i did in nbme 11 and 3 a week ago. Here are my scores.
uworld SA1 = 242 (18 days ago)
NBME 3 and 11 = 228 (1 week ago)
NBME 12= 228 (today)

How do i improve in a week so I can hit 240 somehow.

And how do you guys cope with the anxiety during the exam? I almost had a panic attack while taking nbme 12. Like I was expecting to score more than 235 this time around but ended up with the exact same score

Get something that you really hate and give it a 24-hour-full-power-no-shower read!

Just stay calm! You should be confident with that score! Its a really good score. Just go over FA since you have some time! And keep reviewing your weak areas.
