Default Exam in 11 days. Reschedule?

Took nbme 4 3 days ago. Got a 231. Goal is 240+. I'm just sticking with UW. I'm currently on my second pass and 25% done. I plan to take UWSA in a few days. What do you guys say?

hey you are very close, don`t give up, and you have only done 25 percent, so if you finish like 75 percent of your review then you will probably score >240.
good luck!

goodluck !!!

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm able to do 3 blocks right now max because I end up reading all the explanations which takes a lot of time. Would you suggest reading only the educational objectives for the easy questions? I can probably do 5 blocks if I do that.

-36 is 225. I'm guessing I missed 32-33.

Hey.. Just stick to uworld, revise mtb and topics from FAstep1... Watch comprehensive cases in last week (will give you confidence to face most commonly asked pathologies)..

All the best !
