Default Which exams to appear in Fall?

My next exams are in October. Which exams combination should I prefer?

CT6 (Statistical Methods) and CT4 (Actuarial Models) or
CT4 and CT5 (Contingencies)? or
are 3 papers (CT2 (Financial reporting), CT4 and CT5 or CT6) advisable to do in 1 attempt? Will I be able to do it, if I study hard?

I gave CT3 (Probability and Mathematical statistics) and giving CT7 (Business Economics) this month. I cleared CT1 (Financial math paper) in last attempt. My stats knowledge is fresh. I am studying full time. I spend around 10 hours a day (maximum) to study. I will start to study from 13 May onward. Some days, it vary to 7-8 on an average.

Can somebody provide guidance for picking up the best strategy?

CT4 & CT6 in October.

There are a LOT of students who successfully double and triple up with these exams, so it's quite common.
