Default NBME score is going down, what to do?

Hi guys/gals,

I didi step 1 in June and scored >250.
I've been preparing on and off for step 2 ck since, I made the mistake of focusing on question bank (UWorld) for step 2 prep and I am scoring around 72% overall.
But my NBME score has been constantly declining:
Aug 25 form 4: 570/252
Oct 22 form 3: 510/240
Nov 23 form 7: 440/225

I am freaking out! what I am supposed to do?
My exam is in less than a month.
Any advice please!

Thanks for the encouragement, but I am still very confused. I will do NBME6 next week to see if I have made any progress. Exam on 22nd.
