Default Advice: when to schedule exam?

I am done with all Kaplan reads and a couple of FA. Also did DIT2011 but that was 6 months ago.
UW scores aren't upto scratch though. Have done 27% of UW all timed random ques.
AVeraging 70%. Started with 74, dropped to 72 and then 70 has been fairly constant over the last few blocks but scores are fluctuating widely. In 13 so far blocks they are:
74 65 78 72 63 72 67 74 76 59 78 70 57
I was aiminf for 250 but now Im not so hopeful.
Havent scheduled my exam yet. Bought april may june triplet didnt take date.
What date should I target now?
Also does any1 have any suggestions on how to improve on this to get to my target score?

Take nbme 11, or will tell you where you really stands and focus on your weakness after nbme.
