You said that you have 17 days to go so it doesn't matter if you postpone it now or 6 days before the exam as you gonna pay the 50 dollars fee, my advise is study the FA very well as well as the UW notes very well in 10 days and do one self assessment on the 11th day if still low score postpone, good luck

Thank you guys for support and reply,

will try to finish FA Read in Next 5-6 days and will do another NBME online. And make a decision based on that.

Also i have taken nbme 6,11,12 online & UWSA 1.. and next week if i take 7 online and if for some reason i do bad and decide to postpone the exam.. then i basically have no other assessments left for me. except nbme 5 and 3 and UWSA 2. I donno what to do. Should i take free 150? is that realiable??
