Do not take test, you are not ready, learn from others mistakes, not from your own!

First, reschedule ur test, then take a deep breath......and focus on UW questions, other Q banks, FA....172? its not close to a passing rate! It was my score when I failed on actual exam!

Yeah dont take the test now.You are not getting higher scores.
I Think you should extend your test date.Go through First Aid And even kaplan for the subjects in which you are getting low scores,and then do NBMES to see where you stand.

GOOD LUCK

It happens to every one initially it doesn't mean u will perform poorly in exam. U did nbme now look at ur week areas and work on those areas, u have enough time to work on those areas. I m in same boat with u. We have to do it any how with any cost. Keep it up
This exam experience is for people who had to struggle; If I did it, everyone can
