Unhappy Do i have a chance? Depressed.

Hey
I am a 3 rd year medical student. Planning to give step 1 after 2.5 mnths. I have not done kaplan videos religiously but have done the micro, biochem, behav, physio , immuno and pharma part. I have done some of goljan and some of pathoma Its actually been a little tough since i am in img and currently have classes going on. I took nbme 7 and scored 190 which was very disturbing as i was/ am aiiming for a 250+. After that i did kaplan qbank for 2 weeks with an average of 55-60% iin 15-16 blocks. Has been a week since started usmle rx and have been scoring 60-70% with a cum of 225+_20 . And have been going thru first aid side by side too although not complete yet.

I just want to know dat after FA n usmlerx and then uworld do i hv a chnce of getting 250+ or shud i just expect less???

Would appreciate some guidance.

you're clearly stressed out, not a good sign.
have you done UW yet?
have you no option of postponing?

IMO (my exam is may end too)

you should start UW ASAP since it takes quite a bit of time to finish(took me 40 days)
and review FA side by side

no point worrying too much since you cant postpone it anyway, just try and make best use of your time.
Its not impossible to get 250 in your situation but theres no guarantee in mine either although ive almost finished UW!
just give your best shot!
