Default ready or not to take step 1

Hi, friends,
I have scheduled to take step one 7 to 8 weeks later. I am practicing with USMLE World, the correction rate varied from 50 - 70%, but most of the time is around 55-60%. I am working on this 3-4 hours each day because I have a full time job. I plan to full time prepare for this in the last 4 weeks before the exam. Do you think I can pass it based on this 55-60% rate? or I need to postpone the exam? Thanks.

Its better to give an NBME ,it will give you a better estimation of your preparation and about your weak areas.

So your plans include just passing or scoring high ? Go for the NBME. Personally, I think 3-4 hours are quite less.
