Help Burnt out and test in 5 days

I really need someones advice.... I am literally breaking apart
I gotta say as happy as I am to see all these people say this exam is doable, I am still very worried about my prep.
I thought I started off o.k. Doing Kaplan LN and then UW, MTB here and there...but now I am serioulsy worried. I have not done Kaplan Q BANK, only UW once with Incorrects all repeated,,,,have made endless notes which I will never have time to read. I have completed PEDS UW explanations, cvs and GIT ..these r my weakest. But everything else..huh? I don't know whether to laugh or cry at myself right now. I feel all the prep I did do just might go to waste bec I won't be able to recall..I have 5 days left....please advice me on how to go about my last days of prep.
My NBMEs so far are NBME 1..560. NBME 2 ..500
I dropped 60 points and really worried. Afraid that i will be going downhill instead of the other direction...Will be doing UWSA soon.

Please give your sincere advice...

I am not an expert..& may be not the right person to give advice!
But I can share with u my personal experience,I was in the same position in fact worst than that!
I even dint finish reviewing the wrong answers of UW!I did kaplan ,MTB here & there!But at this point I will suggest u to go for NBME 4
everyone says that predicts well,though I am waiting for my result so i dont know how true is that!
Go through some topis ,in which u feel that u r weak,on the last day,do the free 150,try to have a good sleep.
The exam not only tests ur knowledge but also ur stamina,this is a long tiring exam!!

I hope that it will help,be calm,its just another exam..

All the best for u!!!!

I think you have enough time to review your notes and do UWSA.Your NBME is good so be calm..
