Usually USMLE World qbank takes shorter time when you do it after Kaplan Qbank.
I'd say it needs 6 weeks of full time study (e.g 8 hours per day) if you review the answers carefully. Make your goal is finishing two 48 questions blocks per day this will translate into 20 to 30 days to finish the whole 2090 questions of the UW bank.
So if you start now you can finish it mid February and then you can take the exam.
Do NBME and see your prediction during this month so that you are sure of performance in the exam.

Good luck
