Help Worse Performance on NBME!

I don't understand hows this happens but I am very scared right now!

I took nbme 12 like a month and a half ago and scores 530-228 on it and now fast foward a month and a half later and I take nbme 5 and I get a 490! My scored actually decreased, I am so disheartened right now with no idea as to what I should do! I take my exam in 2 months and dont know how to respond to this. A month and a half of studying and I actually do worse!!! I have done 73% kaplan timed random (cumulative 70%) and 40% uworld timed random (74% cumulative) no idea what is going on but I am very shaken. Please help me and be brutally honest!
