Help Two Weeks Before My Step 3 Exam

I have prepared for 3 months and did Kaplan q bank and scored 76% in first go, Uworld (only biostat left)- Score 66%, but my UWSA score is 470 and NBME (form 2) score is 450 only. Two weeks to go for my exam.
Any opinion or suggestion is more then welcome.

I agree, 450 is not good at all,I guess there has been something wrong with my prep.Step 3 seems to be a nightmare,never struggled in any of the other steps.I plan to see for a week more,if I find myself still struggling,then may be I will postpone.

I have MTB 3 but did not complete it.
Once did Archer's workshop recorded CCS,costed only $88(In June),Dr.Red was awesome,his different accent is overshadowed by his knowledge.Very impressed with him.They have limited hours of viewing which i did not know and missed some part of it though.
Kaplan qbank
Usmle world qbank
Usmle world CSS
NBME self assessment( had many questions which checked general awareness or responses to queries by patients,I have heard in real exam there is lot of such stuff.)
UWSA

UWSA
I'm almost done with Kaplan Q bank, what surprises me is more people do not do the Q's on Kaplan since Dr. Fischer is editing the Q's it flows with MTB which is considered Gold.
I decided I need a month of CCS with (CSS) UW to complete my study. So that means Sept exam for me I guess, not back till October something.
