Default NBMEs, to do or not to do

I've been preparing for CK for quite a while, as well as having a full-time job. i took time off this job for two weeks before my test which is on the 23rd of Dec.
I've done a KAPLAN free diagnostic test a while ago and got 60% but that's the only diagnostic I have done. I'm currently reviewing using UW (do a block then read the explanation and review relevant material if needed).
I'm very anxious and I really don't want to push my test date because I'm tied with other obligations right after the test (start working on some project).

my question bank got reset at the middle of my prep cuz I didn't renew but now I'm on the 13th block, av score 68%, overall correct 52%

question is, should I take an NBME or UWSA at this point? is it worth it or should I just use the time to do more questions
