UW shouldnt be used as a way to see how you are doing, the assessment tests are for that. Since this score indicates a fail, spend another week studying, and take an NBME. If score is still low, then you might consider postponing a month, any reason for the rush?

No I have always been doing questions in timed tutor mode. last month I did the questions in timed mode. I did U world assessment. after reviewing the questions I realized that I had a panic attack during the exam thats why I couldn't figure those questions out. while Offline reviewing the question.. I answered the questions without even looking at the options.
I am thinking of waiting till 10. then will give another NBME and then go from there. How can I extend the exam? How much does that cost since it is on 19th. Also any suggestions as to how to go from here?

Actually I am rushing because I have to be somewhere in april. But I guess I cant make it. Now my nerves are taking the best of me and I am having a lot of anxiety with that I dont think I can make it till 19th.

I have extended my eligibility period now.. I was having a severe panic attack.. But now its another tension. The extension approval takes some time and can't seem to stay without tension... its all a mess this time.. I dont know what the problem is and how to start all over with it and deal with it all over again... please guide me.. I am planning to delay the exam 6 weeks from now.. I hope it is enough to get over all the important things...
