Default NBME 3 155/200. What's the maximum we can miss?

Any suggestions and tips? I'm going to be doing NBME 4 Friday and purchasing NBME 5 Sunday. For these next few days I'm going to be doing 4 hour blocks of Biochem, Pharm, and Neuro. Biochem, Neuro, and Genetics are kind of weak areas. I'm hoping to see an improvement.

What's the most we can miss per block to get a 245 on Step 1? I'm losing a lot of sleep over my poor performance. I know when I did NBME 7 I got a 188 where I had missed close to 65 questions, iirc. That's around 16 questions per block.
