you should postpone your exam and seek why this happened, maybe stress during exam don't allow you to think perfectly. Look at your wrong questions, see if you can answer them without stress or you even don't know the concept of the questions.
if you don't know the answer of most questions you have to study more, but if it is just because of stress or lack of concentration during exam you have to work on your self by doing more questions.
Good or bad, nbme score is very close to your real exam, at least for me was the same.

Mahdis2013 is right,NBME scores are really close to the real.You cant ignore them.But whether you need to postpone your exam depends on what score you are aiming at.
Your UW score is pretty much fair.Were you doing UW in timed mode?If not time management may be a problem which affect your score.
You should concentrate more on FA and make sure that you know the concepts clearly & can reproduce those with 100% clarity.
Good Luck..
