Default Some advice please!

My Step 1 date is scheduled for Jan 17th. I have done 2 readings of KLN, seen the videos once, done Goljan's RR twice, and did my NBME form 12 (just to see how i stand) and scored an equivalent of 221 (score of 500). I just started my Uworld subscription, and i'm averaging around 60% (4 46 question tests done). People say that 70% and above on the Uworld is a good score to get and is a decent indicator of scoring 240+ on the test. Me, being an IMG, am looking to score 240+, would like to touch 250 too. Am i going on the right track here? As i do more of Uworld will my percentages increase to 70% and hopefully by jan 1st week if i take another NBME, would i score around 240, or is such an improvement in 2 months impossible?

2 months is a veryyy long time!! You can most certainly improve your score above 240. And if you just started uworld, I would suggest that you study it really well in the next few weeks, and then take another nbme right after you get done with uworld. You will be surprised by how much uworld can help raise your score. So yes you can raise your score, just focus now on uworld and reviewing FA. Good luck.
