I personally don't think so. In your case you took 6 months for CK, and if i'm not mistaken, step 1 is a tad harder...by far it has more material and it's more complex. You can certainly push it and try to make it but based on other posts that I've read, if you're a fmg you might need close to 6 months.

You should set up a schedule and map out how long it'll take you based on the materials that you intend to use and how many hours/day or week you want to study. Doing a fair number of questions alone takes close to a month or more.

You might need less time given that you've done ck and did pretty darn good job at it. Congrats by the way.
