Default Advice 10 days left

I'm looking for some guidance. I'm supposed to take the test in 10 days. My uworld score, timed and unused, is 65%, 70th percentile, with 40% of the questions left. My UWSA1 was a 205 two weeks ago. Should I consider postponing?
Thanks for your help

Take an NBME. UWSA test are not very predictive. Also 205 is not a score to go by since it puts you within the margin of failure. However, you may have improved significantly in the past two weeks so definitely take an NBME to make sure you're okay to take it. Good luck!
