Default 5 days to go. Help!!!

My exam is on May15. Im so stressed! :-( I dont know what to do on my 5 remaining review days for step 1. I wanna read FA again, but at the same tome I want to go back to uworld wrong answers.

I have read FA twice (some topics 3x).
I finished uworld, one reading only of full explanation.
I read kaplan biochem and physio before, but I stopped because its too long. :-(

UWSA- 201 only 3 weeks ago
Uworld score 57-70s (The average is low -52 bec I didnt know how to use it before)


What did you do on your last 5 days guys? I dont know what to do with mine.

Not below 230..
Is it really recommended to do NBMEs?
They say same questions come out on real exam. Is that true?

I think doing an NMBE is an absolute must. You're in a precarious position if your only practice test was a 201 on uwsa which is notorious for over predicting. Mine over predicted by 15 points. Do an ONLINE nmbe NOW. The latest one. If you score over 230....chill and relax. If not and you get around 200 I'd Seriously think about postponing. This is not an exam you wanna mess around with esp if you're an IMG.

By the way, that UWSA test was 3 weeks ago. I was scoring 40-50s in uworld then. But I will do NBME just to make sure. Thanks!
