Default What should I do?

Hey guys, I really needed your feedback on this. I have studied the books for ck twice and uworld once. I have taken nbme form 2 with a score of 228. Today I did the free 150 for ck and my scores were 82, 75 and 69!!! Now what should I do?

1. A quick revision of MTB ck and uworld notes and go for the exam.
2. Not take the exam now, revise all of uworld again along with MTB and then go for the exam.

What bothers me is that my free 150 score is so low while nbme 2 score is not that bad. I am aiming for above 230 on the real exam, my step 1 score is 246.

I would really appreciate your feedback because I'm really confused and worried.:sorry:
