Default HELP !! how much should i extend? UWSA 244 .. exam in 10 days

hi.. i posted one month back with similar queries and i wasnt done then.. but i postponed and i feel i am not ready still..
my stats..
my exam is in 10 days.. havent given any nbme as i want to give them when i am most ready but i feel there's so much more for me to learn.
gave uwsa 1 yesterday got 244/620
UW 85% completed .. all unused, random mode 70% cumulative yet.
my target score is 250.
i have read:
read kaplan LN all except patho ( read kaplan only once)
for patho.. only goljan that too just half.. i havent read anything else.
FA - read once and some topics i have read twice.
my questions..
1. i lack confidence.. i found UWSA very tough.. and i know it over predicted my score since while answering i knew questions were exactly similar as i saw in UW question bank so got'em right.
2. i wanna take nbme after may be 10 days after FA 2nd read and revising more UW
3. how much should i extend?? i really think i should extend as i have low confidence and i want to read more.

4. how to revise and what to revise? i prepared a revision and testing schedule just now but thats a good 27 days long.. i dont wanna lose the flow and miss out on what i have learnt by doing UW qbank..

and help??

and ya i scored low on micro.. but i believe FA+UW micro is enuf.. or should i go thru kaplan too?

and how to revise UW???

thnks for replying..
what i plan to do is extend by 27 days or so.. study for another week focusing on FA and revising my UW..
then i'll take nbme 7 !
after that i'll still have another 20 days on hand to go over my weaknesses.. thanks for the reply..
but there's still so much more..
as in revising UW will take me 10 days min plus the huge notes that i have made form UW q bank.. and i have read kaplan only once.. without revising i dunno how useful that time spent on kaplan will be...
and i said i havent done path from newhr properly..
and i scored extremely low in histo..
