If you feel this is the best you can do ..go for it.

Personally.. I'd postpone.. Once you give the exam there is no going back..

If you feel you can do better if you had some more time..don't overthink..postpone!

Just my opinion..

Thank you for the suggestion.
i think if i postpone there wont be much improvement, can't think of doing anything more than what i did.

actually i think nbme 7 underestimates score,
but i don't know if people gave exams after the type of score i got.
i think i am lacking confidence here.

In all honesty ... Just keep going!! If you feel like you have done all you can then you give it 100% and stay confident. Def do NBME 15 and do questions. Right now its all about practice. You've prepared for a while so by doing more questions you can see the different scenarios and ways they can be presented. Dig deep and good luck!!

hey guys it is so true that NBME 7 is worst nightmare..i just lost my confidence after that.. but today i took NBME 15 and got decent score... so i m going for exam in a week... but bcoz of NBME 7 i was about to postpone my exam by a month..
so my advice to everyone is dont judge urself on score of NBME 7... take NBME 15 and judge urself on that score... if u pass NbME 15 with 230 above i think u r ready to go to exam...

good luck everyone

Smile review FA

if you think you have read enough. then what might be wrong is you forgetting concepts. grind your FA thoroughly for a week and do nbme 15 as u planned. if u score a 220+ you are on the right track and will most likely get ur target score if not postpone by max 1-2weeks focus on your weak areas,, FA and do more questions questions questions especially nbmes.

all the best.

check the polls section. I don't know how to attach polls to my post so just search for it in the recommended threads for the Ile step 1 forum. there is a poll on that already. the last time I checked it was nbme 7 topping the polls. but recent test takers say nbme 15 followed by 13( the most recent ones). choose your pick.
