You're not giving enough information to help you.
When is your exam?
What's your Uworld % ? How many times have you done uworld?
NBME scores? UWSA?
Why do you think you have failed to answer the question correctly?

If your exam is truly within ~5days I would strongly discourage doing Kaplan.

Default hey there

Definitely do not do Kaplan qbank in your last 5 days. Spend those days working on your weaknesses. EKG's, X-rays, heart sounds, screening tests, make sure you know the step by step management of very important things like CHF, DKA, ACS, GERD, dyspepsia w/o GERD, Asthma/COPD exacerbation, etc.

The main problem with doing Uworld x 10 times is that you're instead of logically and thoughtfully approach each question you start to memorize the question itself. As the result, you run a risk of adapting a habit when you memorize patterns of presentations without putting too much emphasis on details. If you have problem with ' anchoring' - do NOT do uworld 3-4 times( unless, your Uworld % less than 90 )
Anyways, there is no way to give ' general' advice, you SHOULD know why did you failed to answer questions. For some people, the best advice can be ' do nothing and relax for couple of days' whereas for other group ' Well, you gotta postpone your test'
