Question Cancel it or not? Help!!!

Hi guys:

My exam is on 2 weeks and I do not feel prepared yet. I took a NBME (#7) and did very bad, got less than 200. So right now I do not know what to do if cancel the exam or take it. I paid for the extension period so I have until March 31th. My husband told me to take the exam so I can know how it is and how is the process at the prometric center even if I know that I will may not pass it.

Please, some recommendations or any guidance… thank you!

Nbme7 is a killer since its old and they have modified the scoring system. Take a more current nbme to decide well. I suggest 15 and leave 16 and others behind in case u extend it.
But if u want to score more than 230 then u may want to extend and the earliest time u can retake would be in may or April ending.

I already extended it. The thing is I don't want to lose my money but I don't want a failed on my credentials either. Is very hard to me, I'm a mom of two little boys and is very though to concentrate and study hard these 2 weeks I have left.

Anyways, I will take #15 to see how I do. Thanks for your suggestion.
