You have done everything right except for one thing.......
DO AN ONLINE nbme.
Even 200/200 in offline nbme is crap IMO & from experience..
Reading Kaplan,fa,qbanks etc a 1000 times makes no sense if you don't know what to focus/pay more attention to...online nbme will direct you accordingly

I agree first off take online NBME. Second your last & hour etc Uworld scores look solid which is a great. I would also recommend taking the uworld assessment. Most important thing is to take some form of assessment that will target your weaknesses, and then put your focus on those areas for sure. I will tell you to really focus on timing, that was the hardest part of the exam for me.

Lastly feeling tensed is ok. I think most people feel that way, it's a huge hard long exam and until you are done and have your score hand I think the tension just lingers. Most important just make sure that it's not too intense to the point where it hinders you scoring well. Do some meditation. A little nervous energy is a good thing sometimes though.
