again after re doing u world and working on weaknesses

I gave form 5 on Feb 25 my score again 210.....here biochem high performance but 3 stars remaining all border line....and i did this with out revising first aid read in January

I did not schedule my exam till but thought of giving on March 4 th

but I feel 5 min is imp for as i am slow in thinking i practice 46 questions 1 hour and i give 50 questions 62 min NBME, I am not able to revise marked things....shall I try uworld test or postpone 10 more days and give my shot i want 240 is it possible....i am not able to read any thing from Feb 25 .

I got u world 72 percentage 100 percent complete in test mode, but did 50 percent first time 4 months back...pls advice

If i give step 1 in hurry compromising score, even I give now i will be left with 4 months for step 2 , CS and visa . no USCS ......I dont think I can do for this match. I am 2009 pass, will I decrease chance for 2013 match..ie 4 years out from college

Postpone the exam.

Go back and read Kaplan notes and FA.

Do Kaplan Qbank.

After that do another NBME and see if you can get 240.

There's no problem if you apply (4 years after graduation), it's the same as 3 years.
