Default i need just one more month-pls help

hi there

from reading my post logically you will say ,of cousre postpond your exam
but let me hear your opinion cause i am in a tuff situation now

so i schedule jul-aug-sep to take the exam then i postpond it to be oct-nov-dec and booked the exam on 27th of dec

now with 3 days remaining
i solved about 500q in UW out of 2091q i think

i purchased UWSA1 and 2,NBME 7 and 12 beside downloading FREDV2
and didnt do any
cause i fear i become disappointed when i solve the questions and fail in this trail exam so what will happen in the real exam

now i can not go to the exam and this better if i dont want it to post in my records but i have to pay again 920$ to schedule another appointment
but i am not sure that i can afford it

so what to do should enter the exam and whatever i get i appreciated or what should i do


i really need a honest answer

ok to make think worse my precentile in UW is 9th with cumulative score 32%

seriously take an nbme tomorrow then decide.

nbme prediction is really good.why u fear getting low marks on nbme.it would be much worse taking main exam and failing.
the problem with we img is we r scared a lot.dont be .just suck it up and give an nbme.everybody scared of nbme but everybody do give nbme.

for getting residency-
getting low score on step 1 >>>>>>high score after failing once

cum score 32 in uworld is not good.give nbme u will know what level u need to attain and where u stand .just wake up tomm without thinking anything and give the damn test(nbme)

it doesnt matter what u feel .be realistic ! weigh the outcomes !

take nbme 7 its not so tough very high predictive value
nbme 12 is much more tougher than real exam ,very long stems

if u fail nbme like if u get 170 then for sure u will get same score on the day of exam then u will have to spend again 920$ to retake exam plus u will get a fail on the score report thats not good.

if u get 210 on nbme 7 then your confidence will increase so much that u will not come back to this forum u will learn first aid like crazy and give the exam

28h remaining

i have
UWSA1
UWSA2
NBME7
NBME12
FRED v2
each one of those is 4h so 20h

cause if i take them all 8h will be remaining for UW out of the 28h

FREDV2 and NBME 7..Take NBME 12 if you have the time....read the explanations to all the questions especially the ones you guessed and the wrong ones..Just read FA and Go take the exam!! Good Luck..

I would say pay 920 $ and dont appear for the test , the residency is getting tougher with the 2 digit score gone .... u would like a good score rather than a low score or just pass or god forbid fail ..... because u need to complete u world , FA and revise , i feel its not worth saving 920 $ ... if you still have doubts give nbme 7 then decide ...

goodluck !!!
