If you are waiting to get more than 240, I don't think you are ready to get that now.

What have been your preparation so far ?

Does the report of the nbmes you have done are similar ? Meaning the weakest/stronger subjetcs are the same ? That may help if they are the same giving you a chance to focus on specific subject you score less.

It seems you are looking comfortably at 220+ with your current nbme scores however I would recommend a few additional weeks of studying if ur aiming for that 240.

Continue to do questions, practice is key!
