Default How to stay focussed during the last month and how to best utilize it

Guys fortunately or unfortunately I dont know,got my step 1 delayed by 3 weeks.Initially it was planned for 27th dec but due to the unavailability of seats and prometric closure in the first 2 weeks of JAN I have 16th Jan as my date now...kind of sad as I was preparing targeting my prep for 27th dec....anyways..I would like your advise a to how to stay focussed and prepared for the delay.I have got 3 more weeks..I am currently revising FA and that was the plan to keep dong it till the exam ...now that i have some time should I revise goljan once which I did last 2 months back?I will probably do some offline qbank which I had done around 60-70 % before.Have completed UW online finished it at 13th...I just dont want to get detracked and lose focus coz I have worked really hard till now...Dont know how will I pull through this time...Any suggestions from those who have done Step 1 as to what should be the plan for last month for best results...Thank you everyone
