Listening Should I push the date back?

I'm studying for step 1 and I finished uworld with an average score of 50%.
I took NBME 1 and scored a 360/192 on it.
I started going through UW a second time and now I'm scoring around 60%.
Im taking step on April 26th!!
Should I push the date back?!
Advice please!

Yep, push your date back if you want 99.

Try to do Kaplan Qbank instead of repeating UW

Push your exam till end of may. Realistically you can improve 10 points on the 3 digit scale per 3 weeks of study so you do the math and see how long it will take you to get your target score prediction. This is 10 point increase is not true for everyone though, you can even jump higher.

Thanks for the advice. I started kaplan qbank and am averaging 60% on it. Using the score correlator that comes with it, they are predicting I will get around a 227 +/- 16. Does anyone know if this is accurate?
