I would study hard and then about 4-5 days before ur exam, take another NBME and see if u improve to ur desired goal. If u are not satisfied with what u have.. then u can postpone if u want. If u are happy with ur score, then study ur butt off for the next few days and take it!! Good luck!

Agree with the comments above..
Plus js try to go over the NBMES u have taken to see where you went wrong and ask urself why.. Then focus on ur weak areas... Study FA again and do another NBME before you decide..
Good luck!

Check for you weak areas and get special foucs on them for a couple of days.
Like if is it pharm DIT has a special review of it
or if is Pathology you can get more practice questions on Robbins Review.
