* need CK help from people who are done with exam

  so I took UWSA 1 today and got 230. I was hoping to do much better because from the people i know who did well in CK their UWSA 1 score was in 240s and 250s (not UWSA 2).

Also, a couple people I know who got the same assessment score on UWSA 1 like me ended up failing the exam. So im freaking out now because my exam is in 5 weeks and I have yet to take UWSA 2.

People who have passed CK, please guide me how I should improve my score? I have a low Step 1 score so I really need to redeem myself by getting a high score on CK.

Please help! I know y'all are busy with interviews/match season and have your own worries going on but I would highly appreciate it if I could get some guidance about what I should be doing in the next 5 weeks.

Should I review UWORLD one more time (i did it twice or maybe two and a half times already) or should i switch to AMBOSS?

Also, should I do Onlinemeded for my weak areas?

Please help! God bless you all!

  It will change from person to person, some may do good in the practice exams and in the real exam they may not be doing good.
If you are ready for the exam take the exam, dont take the exam unless you feel confident that you can take the exam.
Try to prepare first the blocks which you feel week.

  Hi,

I am not sure there is one best way to improve scores. Questions are needed to solidify concepts but knowing the material well will help score well on any exam. I personally liked Dr.Paul Bolin's videos on you tube. Listening to lectures through reinforcement helped me very much. All the best
