Default NBME 12 - 190 need 230! Any advice?

Hi guys!
I took my first NBME (12) a few days ago. I scored only 190. Well, itís better since the previous one when I scored only 159 (like whaaat).
It took me a while though. Iíve been out of med school for a little and it does take plenty of time to go through the basics.
Iím taking Step 1 on June 3rd but ideally, would like to be ready earlier so I can start studying for CK (August). I need to apply this yearÖ
Anyway, how do I get a better score? I need at least 230Ö Is it even possible?
I havenít done behavioral/psychiatry, reproduce, general pharmacology, general pathology yet and donít remember CNS at all..
I did some Uworld but max 60%. I started my subscription all over again and want to go in a random, tutor mode this time.

Any advice greatly appreciated!!! You all are so freaking smart lol and Iím like a child in the darkness!!!!
