Help Old IMG needs advice regarding CK exam

Graduated in 1997,has done Step 1 with a score of 220 and passed CK all first attempt. Trying to do Step 2CK by Sept 5th. I did NBME 2,3 and failed. I read intensely and did NBME 4 followed by USMLE world self assessment and scored 217 in NBME 4 while USMLE world self assessment yesterday was 234. I did free online 150 question and scored 80% two days ago. I am really scared of this CK exam,i am not sure if to reschedule or just go ahead and do it. BTW i would love to apply this year. Can any kind soul who has done usmleworld assesment advice if the score of 234 is okay to go for the exam

Thumbs Up CK

First things first, you havent mentioned the time frame in which you did all this. Then score is upto you, depends on your target score whether you want to go for the exam or no. But ideally you will need 2-3 weeks to improve on your weak areas. Keep doing UW, exam is going to be somewhat similar. All the best.

The UWSA is the most predictive. I don't know why you failed an NBME probably it is due to a weak area. Having said that I think its alright to go for the exam as you will get +/-5 of UWSA. Study hard. And let us know the results.
