Stop Do I need to change my test date??

So I need a really good score on step 2ck cause my step 1 was so low. I took NBME 2 today and got 197. My test date is September 28. Should I take a couple of more weeks? would it make a difference? what should I do in the month I have left?
Any advice would be highly appreciated thanks

In 1 month is hard to go from a 197 to a >230, but you still can go as up as 210-220. Good review of UW and MTB CK for everything except peds and OB/GYN for which you will need MTB Step 3. If you put a good effort into those, you can go up. And take NBME 4 or UWSA and then decide.

Default thanks for your replies

I went through the test with the questions and answers I found in other websites I know thatīs not acurate cause the answers posted there could still be wrong. I got 50% 72% 63% and 65% in each block I would think the score would be higher.
Anyway I moved the date a few days so I wouldnīt have to pay the $50 and give me some time to really think how much time more I need.
Iīll definitely take another NBME or UW test next week to see where I stand
thanks for your help
