Well to be Frank exam in 2 weeks is like quite a very short time you have got now, anyways no worries..if you ask me is it possible i would definitely say YES..!

Just give all the best you can , this is your peak time now ..you have to make a well organized study plan for this 2 weeks..focus lots on your weak areas..!
I hope and guess you can do it !

All the very best for your exam!

be happy my friend , extension is only $ 65 , and extension dasnt mean anything bad or anything that make u feel inferior , but just a good decision for your future career and ths USMLE journey . be cool , relax , be happy , analyze down yar problems on prepn , then extend yar exam , and sit down for new study again. DONT GO FOR EXAM PLEASE

better cough up money and extend your period....you may be able to improve a lot in 2 weeks but with the competition now, its better to to aim for the moon rather than the top of the banyan tree

thank u all for ur advise . i think in 2wks an improvement can be done for next nbme but taking exam is a big risk & already its over straining me that my head felt like its bursting so took off yesterday .

my main problem is anxiety & also i just started sending my kid to daycare since 2months only & until then i stuggled studying around her .

whats done is done . will go with the flow from here with intense prep

It can absolutely be done! Do not despair....this is the 2 weeks you work as fast and efficient as possible. I do not subscribe to postponing at all....but that's because I'm not fortunate to be a young fresh img. As I told another reply, in 3 mths a group of colleagues and myself resigned from our jobs to do this exam.....yes....Kaplan and learning is all well and good, if I was wealthy enough to have 6 mths to stay unemployed. Our strategy was FA and ques....so far 7 of the 10 have matched and the final 3 of us are almost there.
Stay focused and give it your best shot...do FA and ques....that's it! Postponing will only give you temporary relief and more time on your hands to procrastinate. Don't postpone.....get it done and move forward.
Believe you will pass....that's half the battle! I believe you WILL! Eye on the prize my friend!
