Default Just need a little encouragement

So my test date is in 2 weeks.
So far my scores have been:

NBME 16 - 227 - 39 mistakes
NBME 17 - 227 - 33 mistakes

After these online NBMEs, I studied for two weeks - FA, pathoma , Uworld and took the following offline NBMEs -

Offline NBMEs -
NBME 12 - 26 mistakes - approximated to be 243
NBME 7 - 26 mistakes - approx 243

In two days I plan to do another NBME online (15) and I'm terrified that I'll get another 227. There's a lot of anxiety in me because for some reason I feel like the offline NBMEs that I took were a fluke/easy I did them timed and everything...

PS -

All I want is a 240+ on the real thing
