Need help regardin my study plan for step 1. last 7 weeks remainin and im freakin out!!

have booked my exam date on dec 10th. Did kaplan videos(except anat and path) long ago. Haven't revised it though!! done with 20% of kaptest, thats it.took few breaks in between, so not sure how much of it i remember.

Have been doing First aid and DIT now. Hope to finish it by 23rd october
Give nbme form 11 on 24th october
Do goljan 125 pages and margin points and slides and tables from rapid review from 25th-3st october

From nov 1st-25th, do 2 blocks of uworld per day and revise first aid and dit in the remaining time
Nov 25th-dec9th- forms 7,12 and 13 and revise whatever possible
dec 10th-exam

I somehow feels the schedule is jam packed and im not gettin enough time for revision.
and i dont have time to revise kaplan notes nor do kaptest. IS kaptest really imp?? Needs to be done?

I'm in a dilemma whats to be done. Moreover, not getting enough confidence to study either!! Everytime I'm studying, I feel anyways its not possible to get a good score skipping kaptest, with such short time. But If I postpone, I'll miss next year's match. In the opposite way, i feel kaptest aint that important when Im doing uworld as such. and reading first aid might compensate for kaplan notes.. So, in a real dilemma.

I always and always wanted to do OBGYN. So aiming for a good score. So not sure whether I should take the test with this amount of prep. Studying for around 12 hours/day and will do it till dec 10th too!!

Hey, well honestly your schedule does look really packed!
If your one of those people who can stick to your schedule completely then fine, otherwise its hard to make it by dec 10th. And what do you mean by kaptest? Kaplan qbank?
If you can start off with 2 blocks of uworld a day thats great, but honestly its better to do it properly and learn from FA and uworld instead of trying to rush everything and not doing it well.
good luck
