Default Step 1 Experience 2014

Hello
I toke my exam on April 28th, there where a lot of Pharm, Neuro, reproductive and pathology questions and XR's Imaging.
I felt comfortable but I got a Fail result, just 5 points apart.

I did:
Kaplan Books
USMLWD Qbank 70%
FA 2013
Goljan notes
NBME 15 270 a month and half before exam date
NBME 16 320 two weeks before exam date
Kaplan book Qbank months before 65%

Please any suggestions to raise my score, I working full time and have a part tine job, I don't want to give up.

This is the first time ive ever seen someone failed with 70% uworld score. Did you do uworld first time random and timed? With 70% you should be definitely in safety zone. I could not really get it. Would you please give some more info about your prep so we can help you

maybe he means he did 70% of the qbank not 70% as an average. Or maybe thats his average but after doing the qbank the 2nd time...cos indeed 70% average on first time random timed should be 230+ at least.
