I planned on taking my ck before going to america but seeing that i havent been able to start uworld yet, and that you need atleast 2 rounds of UW, i dont think i would be able to take ck in may. Now my question is do u think its a good idea that i go to america right now and reschedule CS before ck and then start my dedicated preparation for ck after ive done CS. Or do u think i should try to take ck before going to america.
Depends completely on how you feel about the exams really. Honestly, cs should not take more than 15 days for preparation (20 days max). How are you doing on nbme/uwsa? Not everyone has time for 2 rounds of uworld and I know people who have got good scores with just one read. If you are not performing at the level you would like on self assessments, I guess there is no point in rushing the exam. Unlike cs where u just have to pass (does not really matter if u get low to borderline scores in each section, though hope it does not come to that), ck score is pretty important right.
