Smile CK harder than step 1?

Is it only me or do anyone else feels ck is harder to study than step 1???
I remember when I took my NBMES for step 1 all over 238 to 248 and UWSA even 258's.
CK I study and study and I can't get even a 230.
NBME2 2 months ago 223. Today NBME 4 227.
Exam in a month.
Maybe the fact that for step 1 I didn't have a 1yo baby that wants to be stuck to me as much as he can and when I leave him to go study at library I feel like the worse mom ever. Aghhhhh guilty feelings, plus pediatrics appointments, plus bday parties. This is crazy.
I have to step up this last month and forget about the world.
Any tips on how to improve.
My hubby says I'm doing good and that I getstressed bc I have High Achievement Syndrome (HAS) he got that from a movie. LOL

I felt the same as you about ck being harder than step 1. But keep going, there is a chance that the nbmes are under predicting your score. Keep revising uworld if you have completed it and take all the self assessments for practice , good luck.
