Default Need advice urgently

I am scheduled to take ck on May 12! But today I took UWorld self assessment test and scored only 210! I am wondering should I postpone my exam? The problem with postponing is that I have already taken date for CS for June 15! So if I postpone I'll have to give ck in July! What should I do? Any kind of advice would be deeply appreciated!

I will always say that postponing for any reason is better than failing or passing with a really low score. 210, is really close to the minimum passing score of 203, so in your case, postponing is strongly suggested. (unless your goal is to just pass the exam).

Hi was wondering what was your percent correct to get 210 on the assessment.

Thanks.

I'd say postpone it for another two weeks so you can run thru the material at least twice once more. Good luck

Default Postpone

I think it is so much better to postpone it I was studying for Step 2 CK and in the middle of preparation I took 1 month for CS and then resume my CK preparation, I just got my result today and I have no regrets about it.

While you are practicing for CS you will have like 3 hours a day to study for CK so dont worry about it.

After CS, how long did you study for CK before you took the exam? My only concern is what if one month is not enough!

My advice is to take NBME after you take CS just to make sure were are you standing and based on your score make a plan before taking CK
