What are your other stats? What is your target score? What was your Uworld percentage? Have you peaked and do you feel ready?
We'll need all this information to tell you if you are ready or not?

Thanks. Target is around 230. Uw Ave was 67%.
233 in CK in May. Haven't peaked and would like to revise but at same time want to sit exam asap to be able to apply for match this year (albeit in October).

67% in UW is pretty good, if you aim for 230. (But only if it was timed, random, unused mode).
Do another NBME, see if it's close to the first one. If it's around 230, give yourself a couple of days of cramming your weakest subjects and take the test!

It's all about priorities my friend. If No 1 priority is to apply this year, go for it. If it's a high score, maybe wait a year?

67% is not bad percentage

Do another NBME
Go through your FA again.

All the best
