Default should i take it or not

Here is my situation my recent nbme score is low and my step 1 is one week from right now. I got equivalent uslme score of 192. I did some uslme sample questions on the uslme website and it made me worry. Something tells me im not ready. I already extended my uslme eligibility period that deadline was nov 30. I dont think extending it couple of days isnt going to make a difference. I dont know what to do take the test and fail or not take it at all. Its required i pass step 1 to go on to clinical rotation. I had personal problems so took this long to write the exam. Im not really ready, i dont know what to do.

Extend it. No other thought .
Don't take chance . its' not easy to prepare again after u fail .
give exam only and only when you are sure and at least 230+ on nbmes.
