Help I don't know what's wrong with me

I have been studying for CK for more than seven months.
I did two reads of Kaplan Notes, one of UW and one read of MTB=2. I did NBME 4 two weeks ago and my score was 216. Today I did NBME 2 and got 207.
Since my Step 1 score was 223, I am not satisfied with my this level of performance on NBME. My exam is 6 weeks later, I can't really decide now what to do and how to improve my preparation?
My UW performance was 61 %.

Please note that I am looking at a score above 225!!
I have made every possible effort so far to prepare in the best way I can. I don't know what is wrong with me?

What do you guys suggest me?

Default My suggestion

I would suggest you subscribe to Kaplan Qbank. Start slowly with half a block per day, reviewing KLN as you do the questions and gradually moving on to one block per and then two blocks per day.

After three weeks do another NBME Form and see where you stand. If it is still below your expectation, you continue with the Kaplan Qbank and push your date a little further.
