Help Low NBME score-2 weeks before exam

Hey guys! im pretty confused...I thought I've been preparing well enough but I got a 300 equivalent to 183 on NBME 4 today....I have two weeks till exam day...and I have no idea what to do...I do think i felt very anxious during the test and felt like finishing it quickly but still gave adequate time to all the questions...
I plan on giving UWSA about a week from now...but have no idea whether I should delay the exam or not...Ive been studying for about 4 months straight and had already read Kaplans once about 3 months before that...
Please advise!

postpone your exam ASAP without any doubts. Study more , take a look at your weak areas on your graph from nbme , and use it as a guide. Goodluck

Thanks for the replies guys...
Havent done MTB yet,,but im fighting against kind of a deadline here and i might just be able to add a week...at this stage even that seems pretty helpful...or am i delusional in thinking that an extra week as in exam day three weeks from today would take my score to 230+

i suggest you take another assessment exam UWSA and see where your level is at.
