Default Need advice

Hi My Dear Colleagues- Please help me w ur advice:

I'm preparing for Step 1. I am done with Kaplans, DIT Videos, FA and did one round of UW for the past 6 months, but my NBME score (Offline- 15) is very low (barely at the passing score). So now I have about 1-2 months, I wonder what is your suggestions for the time remaining? I'm definitely planning to do the UW one more round, so do you think that would improve my score (hoping for ~220-230) and is that gonna be enough and how long more do U think I better continue studying (roughly) if 2 months is not enough? Cause I've really panicked and lost my confidence after all these preparations! (

Thanks a lot in advance- God bless you!

I don't know how accurate an offline NBME is , I guess you need to do an online one so we can advice you accordingly
Because your prep is good .

Do an online NBME with expanded feedback and then from the feedback find your weak zones and revise them from first aid!

If you didn't do pathoma and if you are comparatively weak in patho in that feedback then see pathoma.

All the best
