Default 3 months to step 1 exam, only 3 subjects covered. Should I postpone my exam?

So I have been studying for the USMLE step 1 since the last 3 months, but unfortunately, I was slow, so I managed to cover only 3 subjects(physiology, behavioral science and anatomy).
So far, in these subjects, I have finished my first read of Kaplan, followed by a revision, and Kaplan qbank in all 3 subjects. I have done First aid and UW qbank only for a few chapters in Physiology, and fully for anatomy.
Now, I have started speeding up, doing on an average of 8 hours per day, and plan to finish Kaplan/Goljan first read + revision, First aid UW and Kaplan qbanks by first week of December.
My exam is on 30th December (exactly 3 months from now)
Do you think it will be possible for me to wrap up the rest of the 4 subjects in 2 and a half months and in the last 2-3 weeks, finish revising First aid, and UW, take 3-4 self assessments/NBMEs?
Or should I take my exam a little later? I'm feeling it might end up being a little less.
All inputs are appreciated, thank you very much in anticipation

I am in the same boat with You, my exam will be in mid of Jan and I just covered Physio,Biochem, half Micro and half Patho, I think we can boost each others up and we can do it.
