Same here and my test is on MONDAY..., yeah, this Monday.
Did KLN, MTB2CK and UW. I never semmed to get better in UW, don't know why, my percentage stayed the same before I started studying and now.... frustrating.
Then I took UWSA last Saturday and scored 670 / 252 ..., I hope that'll reflect my real knowledge.
I'm not sure why this happened to me. I'm just trying to focus on my weak areas right now and review some tables and questions.
Good luck!

Guys, just a word of advice from my previous experience, same thing happened to me before my step 1 exam.
I made a proper schedule of my sleep ( at least 7 hours a day), my exam was at 8:00 in the morning so i made sure that i sleep at 11 and get up at 6, that made me ready for the exam day and also 'doubled' my performance!
In the last week ,we usually get exhausted, so its a good idea to get back into the normal rhythm at least a week or two before the exam.
I dont want to comment on the study schedule because everyone has his own ways!
Best of luck to all!
