Default urgent advice needed!

Hi I'm an IMG who failed Step 2CK once before. I've been studying and have my exam scheduled at the end of June to take before the July 10 cut off for score report to be ready by September 16. I took NBME 6 yesterday and got 330 (202). Do you think I should go ahead, keep studying and take exam at the end of month or delay for another month? I just really want a 220 on the exam and to have my score back in time for the match this year.

thanks for your help and advice.

You still have time to revise everything again , so I would suggest to go through everything once and take another nbme in 10-12 days time and then decide . If you quit now you wont be able to finish it before the date. In nbme if you dont receive the score you desire I think its better to postpone rather than getting a low score or failing.

Hi pinklady, what reading material and questions have you been doing in regards to preparation so far? Are you doing them in tutor or random online?

You still have a lot of days ahead but you should maybe take one more
practice test like neelima says;

Hi guys thanks for the advice . I just finished UWORLD and am doing incorrects now along with the clinical mastery series. I read mtb 2 + 3 once and skimmed various parts of step 2 secrets. I am planning on studying hard until the exam and giving another nbme. if I still fail (badly) I think I will postpone. Does that mean if I take my exam ANYTIME after July 10 that I won't receive my score until September 16?

Than you guys for all your help!

Don't be too focused on receiving your score before September 16. If you take the exam after July 10, yes you will receive your score on September 16, you can send you application on the 15, and when your scores come in, retransmit your scores. It is just one day difference. It will be significant if it was weeks to months from September 15. So just focus on doing well on your exam. Good luck. I am in the same boat as you so i know the feeling.
