Cancel your exam now, before the 31 day-period, so you won't have to pay any fees.

You need more time.

P.S. from personal experience, never schedule an exam before getting an NBME-score that is near your target score.

i agree...cancel your exam. your uw score of <30% means you need more time to study. if yu want to score high you should be getting >500 on your nbme....that is my plan anyway
