most of the time good assessment for whether to take exam or not depends on score but u did it offline...how long u have been preparing..take some online exam and see where u stand and then u can decide...let see what others have to say some one who had done with exam.....

You will most probably fail the exam.
Don't take it.
Lose the money.
Go read carefully, do online UW and online Kaplan and online NBME and then take the exam.
Don't take chances
Failing the test will have devastating consequences on your entire future/career

I agree with Laith

I know its tough on you, but you have only 2 options the way i see it...
a. Take the USWA and or NBME in about 2 weeks time and see the score you get
b. postpone your exam for the next 3 month slot.

I know its a huge loss of money, but you can regain it back once you join residency and start workin But if you score less, nothing you do can change it..

What are you aiming for?
-simply passing the exam with a borderline score?
-getting an average score?
-getting a good score?

In any case,the best thing to do would be to take an online NBME exam. That would give the best assessment of your preparation.

Hi Sarah1,

I'm putting myself in your shoe, I would postpone the exam.

I agree with other fellows that you should do NBME and make your judgement afterwards!

Hope this helps.

From what i have heard, NBME form 4 is considered the best predictor for the CK exam.
