Default To step takers Advice needed...Pls Help !!!

Hi ...I am studying for step 1 since a year...have done Kaplan 1.5 times, UWorld 1st time - mixed mode ,with note for about 1000 questions (47% cumulative) and
Have started 2nd time , subjesctwise , still left with 1200 questions ,Cumulative so far is 67% with FA 1.5 times...still reviewing and targeting 4 readings before exam.
My problem is while I' m doing UWorld subject wise second time I am forgetting other subjects and have to do read the same books /notes/FA again, taking the same amount to of time.I can't review more than 50 questions a day sometimes even 30 .
Gave NBME 7 on June 30th and scored 330 . Since then working on my weakness subject wise but by the time I am covering my weak subjects....I have forgotten the subjects I did first. Now have to do them again with UWorld and FA and it doesn't seem to end.
Is there something I am doing wrong that I is taking the same amt of time for revision when it shud take me lesser time ????
Want to take my exam in october end.
Don't feel confident for NBME yet as have not finished UWorld or FA second time...but I feel like I am in the same position like I was before Taking NBME 7 and am scared that I will waste money ,time and freak out if I get a low score on NBME again !!
All those who have taken the exam or towards the end of preparation please help !!!Please advice.
