Help Step 1 in 10 days!


Hi everyone, I am an IMG and I will be taking step 1 in 10 days
1. Now the problem is my triad ends at the end of this month and my exam is also at the end of this month......so if for some reason the test is cancelled or postponed by the prometric testing center, what will happen?? will I get a new date? what about the triad??
2. my cumulative UW score is 66%.
I took UW sim exam1 got 234 1 week ago
I took UW sim exam2 got 252 yesterday
I will be taking nbme 7 tomorrow and am dead scared of it because of its reputation as being the best predictor of the real score. I donot know whether these scores are good enough or not and if I am ready to take step 1 or not.....totally confused can somebody help me

Please guide me....I am desperate
BTW I am aiming for a 250

If your NBME score is the same as your target score, then go ahead with the exam.

Your UWSA scores are very good, but unfortunately not reliable.
An NBME will cancel out any doubts you have.


I'm guessing your NBME score will be 235-245. Hope you update us!
