Smile Last 3 Weeks

So I'm coming in the last three weeks of my prep. I take my test on June 16th, and am already having to push those negative thoughts and self-doubts out of my head. I finished my second year of med school 3 weeks ago, and that's when I started studying full time for the boards. Since then, I have gotten halfway through UW with an average so far of 72% (timed, random mode), and have gone through 1st aid once (alongside DIT). For the last 12 tests or so, I have been making 78% to 85%.

Basically, my plan is to of course finish UW by doing 3 blocks/day, then for the rest of the day going over those questions and reviewing first aid. I guess I keep doubting myself, but am unsure about what I should be doing. Is that a good plan- to just go over as many q's as possible and FA? I took NBME form 11 three wks ago and got a 217, then took form 6 one week ago and got a 235. Do you guys have any particular suggestions? Thanks so much and good luck and prayers to all of you! :sorry:

Any help guys? I'm just needing some advice because my lowest scoring area is renal (53% correct), but I have read the chapter in BRS Phys and can't seem to pull it up. Most of my errors here come in physiology.

Besides finishing UW, should I spend these last few weeks trying to cover FA front to back as many times as possible or just focus on my weakest areas. Thanks a lot.
