WOW! you seem to be going at an amazing pace, i think i took 3-4 months to get to where you are right now, so great going!!
Make sure you really understand what your studying and retaining a good amount; I would strongly recommend you take an NBME test like 7 to know where you stand right now It will also tell you what subjects you need to spend more time on. All the best!

Don't kill urself! We have all scored in 40s before. It's good to know u have detected the cause of the low score. That means u would do very great as u work on it.
Good luck.
