Listening Am I ready to take the test?

hi
i have been a silent follower of 2ck forum, and im confused with my situation, please help!!!

I have been studying kaplan LN, MTB2 repeatedly for the last 4 months. this is where im standing according to practice tests:

uworld (60% first time, mixed, timed); 2nd time running >80%
nbme 2 (4weeks ago: 320/188)
nbme 4 (3weeks ago: 330/190)
UWSA (3 weeks ago: 520/221)

so i postponed the exam due to consistency in nbmes and studied again for 3 weeks
took nbme 4 yesterday (540/239)

my exam is in 2 weeks, am i ready for it? i am aiming for 220s..
please help and if anyone had the same experience but did well on the actual exam?

thank you so much in advance

It won't be reliable. Try Nbme 2. See where u stand. Rite now I think from ur nbmes and UWsa , other than the repeat Nbme u r close to 220. Add a plus or minus 10. Dats ur range. Try a fresh Nbme.if it comes in the range give ur exam.

I haven't given my ck yet. But I Thought u were in distress and needed someone to at least give an opinion. Dats is my opinion. May be some seniors can point out
