Default What to study during my last 12hours

Hello
I am an IMG.
Took step 1 one year ago, scored 251.
Taking step 2 CK tomorrow.
Went through 70% of UWorld during 1.5 months.
The remaining questions are medicine questions. UWorld total 84% with 600 med questions remaining.
I score really high on medicine (average 88%) and I feel that my background is good to help with the questions.
I focused on peds, gyn, psy and surgery the last few days and reviewed statistics.
Took NBME 6 ten days ago and scored 260.
Took UWSA today and scored 279! (710)
I am still shocked.
I felt though that UWSA did not cover ethics and stats. Is STEP 2 CK organized like this exam (rare stats/ethics questions)?

Do you think I can surely get a >255 score?
What should I do during my last 12 hours?
Read random NBME blocks or random UWorld blocks + high yield stuff?

Thank you

Well, it's harder than anything I did for preparation. And I felt the same I did after STEP 1. Maybe a little bit less intense because it's my second exam.
A lot of weird questions out of space. Literally guessed on them.
Psychiatry questions were vague and long. Ob/Gyn questions were difficult.
Had 15 min left each block to review marked questions but felt that time is pressing me at times.
Had one abstract. Too long to read.
Also did some stupid mistakes (5 to 10)

I don't know.
I hope I can score >250. I'm not as optimistic as I was before going to the exam.

Thanks for responding. Congratulation on being done with CK. I am pretty sure you will do well.
