Arrow Scored 228 in NBME 13

Hey guys, today i did NBME form13 online and got 530\228,
my exam is 10 days away so should i postpone my test a week or go through FA one more time focusing on my weak areas and go on time... actually i'm aiming for much greater score but in the same time i don't wish to postpone my exam more than a week so i can graduate on my planned time.. so any advice!!

Hi, it depends on what score you are aiming for, usually nbme are off +-6 points.

in that 10 days that you got left it's possible to increase your score by +-10 points (again we are dealing here with assumptions), you know you just revise FA all over again cram all the small details.
If you are aiming for +245 i think you might need to postpone, or just try your luck in the exam.

Generally speaking any score above 230 is very good for matching (as i understand).

Good luck!
