what will happen in two weeks to increase your score by 15 points? NOTHING.

235 is a great score and you have momentum with you, so take the test when scheduled and do not delay.

Don't risk what you have right now.

235 is a great score!
What if you delay the exam and still get about the same score in NBME? I think you should just go ahead and take the exam. Just study FA again (mainly focus on your weak areas) and do uworld (weak areas) and you should be fine.
Delaying works for people who are totally not ready or scoring really bad on NBME but with your score you should just try to focus on your weak areas and go take the exam :) You will do great!
GOod luck!
