If your goal is between 240 and 250 you are obviously ready.
You are not going to decrease your score in just a couple of weeks.
I don't understand what are you asking.

I would make a program to review MTBs in 10 days. I would do Qs, random timed most of the time. You can try kaplan qbank, the IM qs. Do qs, qs, qs.
Good luck. You are good to go my friend. relax
