It really depends on your performance in the NBME's. I had a similar score to yours on NBME 4 but I understood from the performance review that my weaknesses were only in GYN/OBS. So I worked on those and gave USWSA and got 230. As that was also below par for my expectation, I delayed my exam to study more. Look at your performance and see what your weaknesses are. If its limited to one or two subjects, like it was in my case, you can improve that in a matter of days.

I know that NBME result must be minus 10 in order to predict the exam score.
So, you will need really boost your score.\
Good luck!

I would suggest wait, study UW notes/ clear the weak areas before attempting any new assessment test.
