Help Help with low UWSA score

Hi guys. Im really hoping someone helps me with this. I've finished UW once, MTB 2 for IM and MTB 3 for the other subjects.

A month ago I did NBME-4 and failed with 193.(before UW notes revision though)
I then revised US notes and took UWSA today but got only 206!! That's terrible. I had no issues with the timing and my report shows that I'm average in all the subjects but Endocrine.

So my question is this: Other than focusing on Endocrine, what other things should I do to bring my score up?
Does a 2nd pass at UW help? Should I do MTB again? After today's score I've rescheduled my exam for June 27th, but now have CS before CK on June 3rd.

I'm hoping there are people out there who have been in my shoes and can advice me. Thanks.

I just gave my CK exam and haven't got my results yet..so Im not qualified to reply to your query but if you ask me .. A second pass of UW helps a lot!! I strongly recommend it.

i think you should repeat mtb and revise your u world notes one more time..also try revising the incorrect questions also..this should definately boost up your score
