Can anyone advise on this?
Now u have option to take CCS second day any other time and not back to back

Definitely later. I didn't have that option when I took the exam, but I wouldn't have had to think too much about it. At least a good days rest between day one and two would help your brain recuperate.

you dont have to leave the city, you can just stay an extra day or two and have the second part of the test on the last day that you are there.

the question blocks on the second day are the same as the first. the ccs part was hard for me (as in i tanked it) since i lacked clinical experience. fortunately, the multiple choice questions brought my score above 230.
