Help with consistency?

I've only been speedcubing for 9 months, and my times fluctuate a lot. I know a bit of OLL and PLL but I do F2L the beginner's way. I did an AO5 with splits for cross, f2l oll and pll. Here's the best and worst time, with the closest time to average in there as well.

46.432 (Cross: 8.049) (F2L: 20.455) (OLL: 6.769) (PLL: 11.159)
39.409 (Cross: 3.244) (F2L: 24.455) (OLL: 5.304) (PLL: 6.440)
(PB) 26.113 (Cross: 4.009) (F2L: 13.959) (OLL: 5.560) (PLL: 2.585)
One thing I can see after doing this is that I need to learn F2L, but aside from that does anyone have any tips on how to be more consistent?

Personally I wouldn't worry about consistency. Work on speed and as you get faster while the % difference may be the same the times will be a lot closer together. Additionally, if you learn more "advanced" techniques, your times will become more consistent as it's much less likely you'll have lots of bad steps or cases in one solve.

i have problems with this too. its probably because you only know 2 look pll and your cross is inconsistent and relies on luck because your cross is slow.
