Default Focus on weaknesses

Hi, well you have done most of what is required, u gotta identify where is the problem in the weak areas, is it a deficiency of knowledge , unclear concepts or is it that you just cant recall info for those weak areas.
if u donot identify the real problem and remedy it your score wont increase even after multiple readings. So assess the issue properly.

if it is a knowledge issue u can consult more comprehensive review book for that subject , if it is concept issue then oing questions again and discussing those areas with someone will greatly help you. For recall issue do more questions not just UW again do some new questions also, just to practice recall.
hope it helps

Default if

if u studied FA alone, then my advice is give BRS physio and Bsc. kaplan a go. each can be done if 5 days considering u already done with your material. it will boost your knowledge. believe me. for Bsc. u can just do the first half of the book concerned with biostatistics
