Default Nbme 17

Is there anyone around who would like to discuss NBME 17?
Please do get in touch with me soon.
I gave NBME 16 two days ago and got a 245. Gave NBME 17 today and got 4 points less even though I didn't make as many mistakes.
I was aiming for a score of 250. My exam is in about 6 days. But now I'm wondering whether i should postpone for 10 days and study the topics NBME 17 stressed on.
Do get in touch if you're having similar experiences. Thanks! : )
