Question Am I ready for exam?

Hi, I want to take my exam in a few weeks. I got a 206 on UWSA1 and 216 on UWSA2. Do you think that I'm ready? Just looking to get above 200. Anyone with a similar experience or any knowledge of how I could improve even a few points in next couple weeks? Thanks for your help.

take an nbme
that will truly show you where you are
if you're over 200 and your goal is 200 then yea, i guess you're ready.
