Hello, so I am an IMG and have been studying for a while now. Around 6 weeks ago i took UWSA1 and got 160 2 weeks later I took NBME16 and scored 188, So I was thrilled with the improvemnt.

Another 2 weeks later I took NBME 17 and scored 201. Happy that I was on track, set my exam date in a month and began dedicated study. 2 weeks after NBME17 I took UWSA2, and here is the thing, I was a bit distracted throughout the test but that is no excuse, and I ending up scoring 166. :( :(

I have been in tears since yesterday. Not understanding what to do, should I postpone my exam or disregard the UWSA scores??

Any advice is appreciated! Thank you.

Postpone the test - you're not ready yet. Work on your weakest areas. You are going to be fine eventually but don't take the test yet - risk to fail is too high.
