What hurry are you in to take it in 6 weeks?
You wrote it was your 3rd attempt, and if you took all your tests that close time period, it looks like you are practising by taking actual test rather than using Qbanks.

You should use Qbanks effectively, what can we say? You are far more experienced than all of us by sitting for 3 times.

Btw, please no offence i am surprised only.

Take 3 months at least, do kaplan videos for areas you are weak at, lots ofquestions. it seems obvious that your basic knowledge is weak, there is no shame in accepting that, even mine is weak, work on that!

Good luck!

This is your third attempt. You must pass on next attempt. You should consider usmle success academy.. my friend signed up for the step 1, 4 week class...Dr. Paul made him specific curriculum and he passed with a 230
