Help So worried of failing, it's stopping me from studying.

Exam is coming up on Tuesday. Right now, just trying to get through FA. I seriously wished I had read FA through the school year and during my study. I relied mostly on Kaplan and Pathoma for my prep, and of course UWorld. Reading FA, I realize so many questions which I got wrong in UWorld and the NBME questions, were right in FA the whole time.

My highest NBME was 11 at a 230, and lowest was 15, with a 220. NBME 12 and 13, were between 220 and 230. I just feel that the exam is going to go well, and I probably won't pass. My UWorld finishing average was a 66%.

Anything you guys can recommend for me?

How do you figure? I think I just need to keep telling myself I'll get a 250 and hopefully that will help. Jumping 30 points from the most recent nbme is kind of unheard of though...
