Default Use your best judgement

I was in your position some months ago and got the advice to postpone my exam. The only thing I would advice is that if you postpone, keep studying and don't take a break (I did so and it has been hard to get back).
Good Luck!

Help Postpone...

I think is the best. Its better than failing the exam... if really impossible... mmm.... Goljan high yield, you can use the audios. Where is it that you have more problem (anato, patho, pharma... etc.)??? Look in "overall performance" in UW. Work harder on the topics that you have more troubles with.

The most important thing is not to despair, don't lose faith otherwise you'll loose control of the situation.

Why is it that you cannot postpone the exam? If is money... I think you really need to reconsider that option.

Best wishes, happy new year and...
