Anytime after the CK Exam is considered OK.

When you finish the CK exam you will be equipped with enough knowledge that can make the CS exam easy for you.

Whether you do it right after the CK exam or right after your final medical school exam it does not make difference.

It all depends on your personal schedule and when you can be available for the exam in USA.

I didn't know that your International school teaches for the CS exam! If that's the case then definitely wait until then.
If you are talking about clinical rotations and experiences, then yes that makes sense too, you can wait until you gain enough clinical experience before you attempt the CS.
