well we will need a little more information

what score to you want ???

are you applying for this years match ??

step 1 score ??

so basically if your step 1 score is good and you are applying for this years match then go for it as you will definitely increase by 10 points in 15 days ...

but if you want a better score and applying for next year match extend it !

you can even try nbme 4 it is said to have a good predictive value too ....

goodluck ............

well yes there is a risk but 15 days is also a good time, would say take nbme 4 after a few days and see what you get ...... i guess if you cancel your exam 5 days before you are charged 250 $ so give nbme 4 before that and see what you get ....

in my opinion you should try for atleast a 240+ score will cover your step 1 if you want IM , if peds then 230+ which is possible in 15 days so give your exam and who knows buddy you might land up with a great score ....
and might get into IM too just try for an nbme score of 235 ... if you get around that go for it .

goodluck ........
