Default Advise on exam

Hi all,

here is my situation, i really really appreciate your advise on it, i'm kinda lost and freaked out:

I'm an IM graduated in 2010, the I did a masters in epidemiology at USC (i'm doing my thesis now and will graduate this fall).
My step one score was not that good (223) and I passed CS on first attempt.

Regarding the CK exam, I just finished UW with 68%. I took the UWSA exam when i did 50% of UW qbank (apperantly it was stupid!) with 228.

i have few questions:
Do you think that I would be able to apply this years? or should i study more for a better ck score?
If you think its doable for this year, how should I study and when i should take the exam?

-few more info about me:
i just found about MTB3, all i did was UW and MTB2.
here my performance on UW:
internal med 67% (65th)
OBGYN 73% (60th)
Peds 65% (42th)
Psych 65% (14th)
Surgery 81% (86th)
and one more strange thing! my percentage are repeating this weird pattern; i start with 80, then one or two 75 then a 65 and then a 50% and back to 80%, i don't now why my scores are this much unstable! any advise?
