Listening EXAM in 2 weeks - NBME 12- 400

I posted a panic thread here back in NOV after doing very badly on nbme 5. A lot of you helped me out and I want to thank you for that. My exam is in 2 weeks on jan 23 and I would appreciate if anyone can offer some last week tips. Here are my stats

NBME 5- 220 (Nov)
NBME 7 - 320 ( a week back)
NBME 12- 400 ( today)

UW- 60% Mixed/random- I have been taking notes and redoing wrong questions since 3 weeks now.

My improvement in score is fully dedicated to DIT. I still have to do biochem and micro of DIT but I am saving that for this week so I can take nbME 11.

These two weeks, should I complete rest of my DIT, and keep doing UW and finally take nbme 11??? Any tips for last few days? and is NBME 13 really worth taking because I heard it had some nasty Q that can bug you.

I really recommend DIT 2012 because it might seem really a daunting task but they make you go through every line of first aid. My scores improved a great deal after I did it and I am on my final stretch so if you have sufficient time, please do.

I read first aid 3 times before doing DIT so My speed of videos were fast. On a good day I could do 8 videos and learn properly.

Regarding 12 nbme- This was much better than nbme 7. 12 focused more on patho, resp and cardio and had decent amount of behavioral. I felt 7 was tricky with lots of neuro and biochem.
