Help Extended Eligibility Period will expire

Hi

I am from Egypt, as the current events I am not well prepared to take my step 1 now

My extended eligibility period will expire on 31 march

what should I do?

If I did not take the exam, can I reapply directly on 1st April or I have to wait 60 days before the new period begins.

Thanks

Yes. you can apply immediately after the end of your extended eligibility period but you have to pay the whole exam fees again.

Your new period will be up to your choice, it's totally a new application, you can choose any three months you like.
