Listening Am I ready to get 250+ in Step 1!

Hey, Just looking for some advice.....
Planning to give step 1 in about 2 weeks, around the 17th of June.

Gave USWA 1, 3 days ago: 252/670.... also have USWA 2 but havent given it yet
NBME 1,2,3,7 offline: averaging around 87% questions right
uWORLD average: 80% with 3 blocks left, been working on it for the past 2 months
FA: 1 read so far a few weeks ago
Kaplan: 2 reads 2 months ago
Goljan: 2 reads 2 months ago

Aiming for 250+.........

Heard that USWA overpredicts the score, is it true? and going back over it, i made some very stupid mistake like not going over genetics and getting easy genetic terms mixed up and forgetting a few biostats formulas, loosing around 10 questions with those 2 which had i known the definition of the terms and equations i would have gotten right.....

So now my real question is....... am i ready for what i am aiming for? What more do i need to do?

Realized that most of my questions wrong were actually simple had i read the question stem properly, so planning on doing that well. Im mostly scared with time so i end up hurrying up and finishing in 45 mins but that messes with my reading of the stem.

Could really use some advice, seeing how most people get there questions answered here

Oh and havent booked the date yet, and my eligibility is till end of July, so i can postpone if i need to.

Hope, help is on the way I could really use some advice right now, since im confused and dont know what i should study and what I should focus on..... Thanks Everyone

Thumbs Up ya , uwsa ovr predicts original score

One of my friends took UWSA 3 weeks before and got 257 (or something like that)
but in real exam she got only 238 , any way do NBME online and decide whether you are ready or not
all the best

Default Thanks

Hey, thanks surez18
Im just mainly lost on what content i should be going over.
FA or my uWorld notes? Its all kinda confusing right now.
I dont want to hurry up the exam and then regret it later.
Dont know wether i should look back at goljan or kaplan or not?
Any advice about going back to kaplan or goljan?

Il be giving an NBME some time soon, just need to go over the small things once again, because i want to get atleast 90% of the question right on the NBME's so that i can be on the safe side.

Any More Advice would Be Greatly Appreciated
Thanks beforehand
