95 body areas 4 EPF
95 Systems 7 Detailed

97 15 bullets in 8 systems Detailed

In order to get a Comprehensive Exam under 97 you need at least two bullets in at least 9 systems, which you do not have.

Keep in mind that this is using a General Multi-system exam. Looking at this I would want to use maybe a Neurologic specialty exam since you may get a higher level with that, but I have not used that for years so I don't recall at the top of my head, but check it out.
