Listening postpone again?!

Hi everyone, i need some help. I am considering pushing my step 1 date back. I have my date set in two weeks but my scores arent good. i got 198 on nbme 11, 204 on uw ass 2 and most recently a 189 on nbme 7. I really do not want to push back my date bc id have to pay the 800 all over again but am scared il fail if i take it. I feel like my weakest areas are biochem, biostats, and physio even though I have done kaplan for phys and stats. I dont know if i have reached my peak, and i feel like im going nuts. Im having break downs left and right, my body is hurting. The thought of doing this for another month and half makes me want to give up but I dont know, im too scared to risk it. Any thoughts??

Ur info shows u hv step 1 experience. How come? Well if that was a mistake then edit ur info.
1. Pls reschedule ur exams. It would be a disaster if u take it.
2. Did u understand the physiology, biochem and biostat from Kaplan well? Was it failure to recall? I mean u hv to find out where u are weak in those subjects.
3. A study partner can help you master the difficult concepts for u.
4. Give positive mind to the studies. We all burn out at times. U may have to take a day or two break to gain strength and recoil back with vim.
5. U can post concepts u don't understand here for help.
All the best

Take it. You'll pass. You need more time to do questions. QUESTIONS are the key
