Listening NBME Form 2; 490/228; Am I ready!

Guys, I took NBME 2 today.
Got 490/228.

What does this score mean??

I am going to take UWSA on 15th March.
NBME-4 on 21st March.
Exam is on 30th March??

Am I ready to take exam?? OR Should I delay it??

Any input is highly appreciated...

I also had a very similar score yesterday on form 2..and my exam is in april first week..
i reviewed offline version of nbme 2 later in the day and found there were far too many silly mistakes on my part and may be the score could have gone further up,though the mistakes will always happen as they did in step1,got dejected for some time as I have to take CS too in a month before they change the pattern so I am in a very strange situation right now..
what I decided to do is to revise UW as I have not revised it yet,still have 9 more tests to do from it have kept it till end after revising once,will take nbme 4 by 20th march and if i still cannot take my score beyond 235 or something I think I will postpone my exam though that will cost me my CS and situation where i will have to apply wothout cs results but there's not much that i can do now..
so for u try going through ur weak areas take another assessment in a week's time,coz in any case u will have to pay for post poning ur exam now or later and if u have time in ur hand (unlike me) then u can always post pone it to some more days and take it when u feel confident as we get only 1 shot at it,so better make it worth it!!
do lemme know how u go about it as it might help me too1! good luck

Thanks, I will decide about postponing after taking UWSA on 16th , if I get above 230 in it than I will definitely take the exam.

Again, NBME 4 on 21st March- so in it if I get less than 220 than I will postpone it!!!!

It's pretty much messed up right now. Let's see how my journey ends.

Consensus about NBME and UWSA is not good in Step 2, means any self -assessment is not a good predictor of real score. So we have to decide the lower limit and go on.
