Help Horrible nbme 5 score.- need a game plan

I just did horrible on my form 5- I wanted to test out my knowledge and it completely shook me to the ground.

I was around 50% in UW and I got about 300 Q left (mostly pharm and biochem).

I started kaplan but I did not finish all of it. (70% done)

My exam is in 8 weeks. Here is what I came up with so far. Help me out with your thoughts/tips


DIT course - cover first aid
RE- DO UW again - thorough explanation
FIRST AID REVIEW AGAIN
TAKE ALL NBME FORMS.


I really want another Q bank other than UW - Should I go ahead with usmlerx or kaplan?

What did you get on the NBME? And what is your % on u-world? Did you read FA yet?

NBME 5- 220 (this is 156 in step 1)

UW - 50% as I was doing kaplan.

I did first aid twice- doing it again in athorough manner along with annotating with UW Q bank.

I recommend you read FA a third time and finish UW and write another NBME and see where you stand.

Smile Miracle score growth

Three weeks back I posted a horrible score of 146 here. A kind person suggested I redo first aid again since I was done kaplan and my uworld first attempt.

I did UW assesment 1 and my score jumped to 200. So guys keep studying first aid like its the book of life.....
