Default Study Schedule, Please critique.

Please Critique my Step 1 study schedule.
I am an IMG studying at an Irish school. I have slacked off this year in school and didn't really do much background preparation. Will be writing USMLE step 1 at the end of September, and can only start studying end of June (~25th June to 20th September). Score aiming for: 250.

Here is my schedule:

First Run through (58 Days)= Mostly annotating and memorizing, not much practice.

Day 1+2 = 1st Diagnostic Test
6 days = Biochemistry (FA + Rapid Review Biochem or Kaplan Biochem + flash cards)
3 days = Anatomy (FA)
2 days = Embryology (FA)
3 days = Neuroanatomy (FA)
1 day = Catch-up Day
6 days = Microbiology (FA + Micro made redic simple)
1 day = Immunology (FA)
1 day = Histology & Catch-up Day
5 days= Behavioral Science & Biostatistics (FA + HY behavioral science)
6 days = Physiology (FA + BRS Physio)
1 day = Catch-up Day
13 days = Pathology (FA + Goljan RR + Audio Goljan)
8 days = Pharmacology (FA)
2 days = 2nd Diagnostic Test

Last 4 weeks: UWorld practice while doing a couple full FA (+ Goljan) reviews (systems-based). Doing 1 diagnostic test under test center settings.
