I am in the same boat...I took NBME 6 17 days before my exam and got a 223..I postponed it around 10 days so gave me a month or so...my exam is on the 9th of december now and I am taking UWSA tomorrow so I ll let you know if what I did was actually helpful or not

I did UW for the second time during this period (around 20 days), read most of MTB 2 for medicine (as advised by Renaissance which worked out for him) and focused on some weak areas I have in peds, ob/gyn from kaplan

You are kinda close to your target so no need to freak out. UW is EVERYTHING so focus on it and then probably take UWSA or another NBME a week before your exam and take it from there

We seem alot similar! I did the nbme without studying derma, preventive med, ophthalmo, ent so I just finished the uworld qs on these topics now and I'm gonna review them from mtb, and begin revising mtb with focusing on weak points + solving uworld online random mixed mode and planning to do another nbme in 2 weeks.. pls keep me updated and good luck!

Just finished UWSA and scored 240

a bit of silly mistakes here and there (which will also be expected during the real thing)

8 more days and I ll be done with one of the most exhausting exams ever!
