Hey there!
Yout scores are awesome there is no need to worry! What's done is done. What you will score is pretty much designated by now .. The last 5 days just focus on a good refresh of your knowledge! It doesnt matter how slow you are.. You now KNOW your step 1 stuff, you dont have to read again topics that you know. While passing through your material and you see a topic ask yourself what do I know about that and answer .. Are you confident, did you forget any important info? .. If no then just move forward. Time is of essence now. You have to spend time ONLY for topics that are really difficult to you to stick to your mind .. Good luck, thats only 5 days.. Do your best!! :)

Done with step 1 finally. Thanks for your help. 2 blocks were awful. Rest 5 were easy. Last one had only 32 questions and it was weird too. But its doable. Lets wait for the scores now. Hahaha.
