Help Advice 2 weeks left

Hello friends, I have 2 weeks left until my exam. What do you think is the best plan of attack now? Should I just read FA 2 more times and keep doing questions? I did kaplan qbank with 63% avg only about 1/2 done, and right now I am doing UWorld with a 65% avg and i am 80% done. I am starting to get nervous and worried and am forgetting things I knew before. Thanks for all of your help and advice.

My plan for my last two weeks is to do around 150 questions / day minimum and then finding out in which question I am doing wrong.
If am doing wrong more in pathology questions I would go back to FA and read up on it.

Also in these two weeks try to write down whatever u need to memorize like genes, tumor markers or where specific receptors are present etc on a piece of paper and then review these specific things everyday.

Keep aside two days for one last revision of FA complete.

p.s. and take care to adjust u r studying habits in to a daytime mode because exam is long and we need to be performing at our max during that time period.

hope this helps..all the best.

Yah, do more questions. read First Aid and follow your notes. Try and sure up the things that you are getting wrong.

Continue to memorize pharmacology

and start to write out your things you want to remember for the exam. Example would be to draw the biochem cycle fully.
