Default 1 WEEK left for my exam, advice please

Hi there,

My exam is exactly in one week from now.
I did UW Qbank twice , first my accumulative was 57% and the second im in 76% with the last 10 blocks performance average 85% . Still have around 20% left to be done from the second pass tho.
My problem is that i have bad history with the self assessment exams, the last NBME form 1 scored 210. 1 week ago.
Im having an average of ,at least, 7 min remaining in each block (UW).

Im seeking for an advice regarding my readiness for the exam, assuming i dont have the option to postpone !.

I still didn't take the exam ... but judging from what we hear from people who took the exam ... NBMEs are pretty much accurate so now u know where you are standing ........ it's all now depends on your aim ... what is your desired score .. and based on your other credentials will that score ensure you a post in the residency program of your choice
so essentially if your aiming for 240 + it will be difficult for you to boost your score in such a short time , and in that case postponing will be a wise thing to do ... if your desired score falls somewhere around 210 then go for the exam ...
and by the way your second pass of UWORLD score is good so try to know where the defect is .... is it the timing or what ??
best of luck
