228 is a pretty good score. You have around 18 Days till your final exam. I think you dont need to postpone it. If you really work hard and improve 1 mark daily, you will easily cross 240!! Good luck!! Work on your mistakes in NBME 13 and then attempt another NBME around 7 days before the exam.

You'll do great! Read the FA a couple of times before the test and keep doing UWorld. You might get your score up a few points! If it stays the same, it's already a very good grade.

It depends on your goal... Do another nbme next week. If your score is within your target range (i.e. in the 240's -- if this is your goal) go ahead and take the exam. But it if it's still 10 points short, I'll consider postponing it. What's another 2 weeks if you can increase your score 20 points? Also, you'll want a safe margin. Nbmes are +/- 10 to 20 pts from the actual exam.
