Default Failed NBME 12

Hi guys,
I took NBME 12 yesterday and got a 310 which translates to a 188. (Fail)
I am so devasted.
This comes after studying for 8 months with Kaplan, first aid 3 times and completing Uworld with an average of 64%. I even did pathoma book and videos
Taking an NBME was an eye opener for me.
Please what am I doing wrong and how can I improve on my score? I plan to take the Step1 next month. Anyone with similar struggles and what did you do to improve on your scores?
I need help with any advice you have.
