Arrow Take it

260 is not a bad score!

I think you should go and take the exam.

Default You need more prep

There's huge discrepancy between your NBME score and your USMLE World score. Your UW score is pointing to above 85 while your NBME score is pointing to failure!

Unfortunately there isn't another NBME for Step 3 to take

I suggest you postpone the exam for another two weeks (if you can afford), keep doing the UW and would suggest adding another Qbank such as Kaplan or USMLE Consult.
