If in 3 weeks you raised almost 20 points. maybe in 2 weeks you can pick up another 10 points. 230 on NBME is good, and you still have 2 weeks to keep getting better.

Difficult one. But if u are only interested in 240+ then add a month and u may even get 250+.
But remember also that some poeple I have seen on this forum scored same in their real exams as their 1 month nbme prior toexams. So not a must that ur results will improve by extending test date. Bottom line it depends on u.
But I would personally say add a month if not in a hurry!

i can relate cuz i am in the same boat. i postponed my exam too by a month in the hope of improving to 240s. i will take an nbme after a couple of weeks to see whether its working.
but in your case, your score really did improve. how did you manage to do that? did you try to get new info, use any better sources or continue with fa and uworld?

two weeks is more than enough if you have to jump 10 points..u can never be fully confident..even with a 240 on an nbme u'll be scared to give the exam..its better that u don't postpone it any further..231 is a decent score in nbme 11..u can easily jump to 240 if u work on your weak areas for these two weeks ..good luck

If it helps stick to Uworld cause you just finished FA
There is nothing new that you can add to your memory now, just try to revise as many questions as possible
And good luck with your step 1
