I think Yazz is right; a few days wont make much of difference. YOUr scores look promising. My exam is tmr; I just went to the promentric centre to check it out. Thank God this new centre is only 10 mins away by car. at least I get to sleep until 7. You should chill, watch some lecture videos if you have them, or go over stuff you are unsure. But no need to go hard out for the last few days. You will be alright, mate!

keep duin uw questions,.. play with UW... seriously, you need to play with it in the end till the very end.. i was in your shoes before my exam,. i was so exhausted, so fed up of CK.. that time i read FA step 1 and did uw rest of the day.. sometimes i felt as if i was going for step 1 again :P ... but that's what i did when i was tired.. have you solved all biostat questions in UW?, if not then do that !! Goodluck..
