Registration Applying for Step1 and CS together??

I am completing my online part of Application, noticed the option of applying for more than one exams at a time so I am wondering why not apply ahead for CS.
So that I can save my time later.

Kindly guide me Is this RIGHT decision.

Default It's not a good idea

Once you have a valid Form 186 (or 183) and your credentials verified, you won't repeat the process later on when you apply to the other steps.

So, I see no advantage in applying to two steps at the same time.

On the contrary, I suggest you stick to one step, finish it, and then apply to another step. Because it's not a good idea to commit yourself to an eligibility period for two steps as your circumstances might change in the near future.
