Default need advice! seriously!!

I have about 30 days until my test day. But I feel like I'm lost in the middle. I'm not sure what to do for the rest of the days to improve my score.
My goal is to get > 260.

UW(once, random) overall 67%
Kaplan Q bank(40%, random, still working on) overall 67%

1month ago, I took NBME4 and got 244.
2 weeks ago, UWSA was 250.

I recently heard about NBME CMS so, I'm not sure whether I have to do that or not.
I should have chosen NBME CMS over Kaplan Q bank but it's too late already.
I'm planning to look over the UW one more time before the exam.

I'd be very grateful for your advices.

Honestly ! Imo if you're at that stage , I'd take the test before 9th July ! I don't know if you've taken the rest of the steps , but looking at your current status if you're applying this year
You will easily cross 255 on the test !
255 + early results > 260 + delayed results
Goodluck

I think you should repeat Uworld, as I always hear it is the best source of CK

Can someone tell me if 5 months are enough to get a 250+ score for CK or is it not enough time? knowing that I can study 8 hrs/day.

just repeat uw and also do cms, if you have time study step 1 fa too for certain things relevant to ck .

I somehow feel after 10 july less qs and more time for each question so better to take it with less questions .I took the exam and i had a tough time as i was short of time.

I haven't taken my exam yet, so I cannot guarantee anything for sure.
Speaking of my experience, I've been studying for 2.5~3months until now and my scores of mock exams are quite close to 250.
I think scores depend on your basic knowledge and how hard you work for it.
If it is hard for you to make a plan for your study, I would like to recommend you take NBME first and see where you are.

Hope this can be an answer to your question.

Good luck on your exam.
