Default Is it wise to extend eligibility period?

I have 25 days left in this exam period.I,ll be giving an NBME in 10 days. I want to get Above 250..I was just wondering if i get around 230 on NBME and with 10 days remaining in the triad,would it be wise to extend the triad and take the exam early September or just take it in this period.I really wana score high but my friends saying u shud take it now as i have already spent about 9 months during prep.I feel i still have to brush up A few areas ad it might take more than 25 days for that...Suggestions from those who have taken the exam or experienced such a situation are really welcome.
