Planning my plan for last month, need your input, what do u think?

I have finished uw once on sunday and I have already started to review uw doing 3 blocks perday. my previous date was 20th of july and i am going to try to finish as much as i can till then but i am thinking to move my date for sep now.
I have made a plan till july 20 which i want to share with you and ask you how it is,
so since my score on uw average came out to be 59, in last 40 percent of uw i was getting 60-65 percent on average, but my 1st 60 percent of uw went bad, therefore score didn't come up well.
so the plan, is that i will do 3 blocks each day.. I will try to finish physio in 7 days, biochem, micro, immuno, genetics in 7 days, pharma in 2-3 days, anatomy in 7 days, pathology in 10-15 days! thinking about doing them all from kaplan and then review them from fa.
I plan on taking my uwsa 1 on monday. then nbme 4 on 1st july, then 5,6,7 with one week gap! and uwsa 2 around at 15 july followed by 150 free qs and 7 hours simulation test.
so what do u think?

thank you for ur input, but as u can see that i didn't go above 60 percent in uw, as ppl say that u must attain 70 percent to be a 99er, i want to get 250+, therefore! i want to give it one last try .. what do u think?

Listening my view

i think if the problem is in concept then Kaplan is must, othervise multiple revisions FA with uworld should be the goal.

i m also extending coz feel like a little more prep can increase the scores, as goljan says "the more u read the higher the scores"
