Default 10 days left for CK, please advise.

I have 10 days left to study. I want to take it the 24th of this month.

I have been studying all day for 3 to 4 months.

I got a 250 in Nbme 4 (1 month ago) and a 260 in Nbme 6 (1-2 weeks ago)

Im planning to take UWSA soon, like in 3 days or so. I know how Uworld works, and i have a keen eye for patterns, so i always do well in the Self assessments (so far).

I have 10% uworld left, with 4 days in my subscription. Average on Random/ Timed/Ununsed is 74% (77p)

I dont know if it matters but i got a 248 on S1, nearly 1 year ago.

Even after all these questions IM STILL GETTING QUESTIONS I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. I'm so tired, i know i dont have terrible scores my confidence is decreasing as i approach the exam and realize there's so much i dont know.

Advise for my final days?

Okay so i just got done with UWORLD. I finished the bank, 100%, timed, ununsed and scored an average of 75% .

I took the UWSA today and i got a 750/261 with borderline performance on surgery (from borderline to the top) and OBGYN (from borderline to the middle) .

I wanted to take the exam this thursday, but i dont know if im ready.

Ive heard lots of people complaining about lots of OBGYN/Ped/PSych/surgery questions which are ALL my weak points. I'm not an all start with Internal medicine either but at least its my favorite subject.

What do you guys recommend?


Im aiming for 250+ btw

edit : I didnt check my notes before the UWSA btw, i finished the bank and went straight to the assessment. I'm sure that would have given me at least 1 or 2 more correct answers.

How can i improve my OBGYN , Surgery , Ped rapidly? . I have my notes but the questions i got wrong seemed to be entirely new content lol. I havent read MTB3, do you think it would be advisable to dive into new content so close to the objective?
