I want my script to start running every hour 3 minutes before it ends. how can I program such a thing? and does it involve sampling the system time every second or theres a better way?

Well I don't know how you get a script to run BEFORE it ends, but you don't want to do that in the script anyway. Just use Window's Scheduler.

The Windows Sceduler is the best way but if you want your script to just sit idle for 57 minutes then run a function then

While 1
   Do
     Sleep(10000)
   Until @Min = 57 and @Sec <=11
   Function()
Wend

EDIT: That checks every 10 seconds If you just want to check every minute Then change sleep(10000) to Sleep(60000).
