Smile Exam in 3 days need advice!!

Hey guys just wondering if you think its a good idea to keep my exam date as is (in 3 days). I am shooting for at least 230
In chronological order:
NBME 6: 210 (3 weeks ago)
NBME 4: 221 (1 week ago)
NBME 7: 217 (WTH was that?) underpredicts from what I hear (2 days ago)
UWSA: 234 (today)
Uworld average 2nd time around random: 69%

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

No one can estimate your score nor give you the decision to be confident to take the exam except you.

so people vary in goals and score aims, if your aim is 230 as stated out of what you described you have that score within the range of predictive mock exams, is it a solid confirmation no. At least for me when I aim for 240 I have to see on my NBME's a score above 240 by 10 points or even 20 points just as a safe margin, I hope I helped and Good Luck

Thanks for the help guys. I always looked at my NBMEs to find my weaknesses. I made flashcards based on MTB 2 and 3 info that was important and UW notes that I took in those specific areas and just grinded. I ended up always doing better in those areas which led to an increase in my score.
