USMLE Exam Results; Third or Fourth Wednesday?
Your USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK Results are released on the Third or Fourth Wednesday.
This rule does not apply to the CS Exam. For the CS Exam you can check the results scheduling dates directly from the official website, here's the link http://www.usmle.org/step-2-cs/#reporting
Third or Fourth Wednesday?
-If you take your exam on Wednesday or Thursday or Friday, then you will get your results on the third Wednesday.
Example, a student took the exam on April 13th, 2011 (Wednesday) then the results is expected on May 4th, 2011 (Wednesday).
-If you take your exam on Saturday or Monday or Tuesday then you will get your results on the fourth Wednesday.
Example, a student took the exam on April 11th, 2011 (Monday) then the results is expected on May 4th, 2011 (Wednesday).
Is this rule 100% correct all the time?
No. There are times when exam scores get delayed beyond the third/fourth Wednesday.
What if I don't get the results?
Check your junk folder, the email might have gone there. If not, go directly to your OASIS account. If still no results, then it might be delayed. If no results after 6 weeks, it might be that your results are put on hold due to some problems (unless the official USMLE website announced that there will be exceptional delay during that particular period)
What is the OASIS Trick?

Is it always Wednesday?
100% of the time. It has never been released on another day. Of course if you forget to check your email on that Wednesday (like being in a coma ) then yes you'll see it on Thursday. The other exception is that if you live in Japan or Australia (the far east) then probably you'll get it early Thursday morning
Does the Prometric center location affect this rule?
Absolutely NOT. It's always the same time for all students across all countries worldwide.
What time during that Wednesday?
Usually at 9 AM Eastern Time (New York, Washington, Philadelphia Time). This means 6 AM Pacific Time, 8 AM Central Time, 5:30 PM New Delhi, 1 PM London.
In exceptional cases, students reported that they've seen their results before 9 AM (like for example 7:30 AM) specially when they open their OASIS (results often available in the OASIS account before the email is sent by few minutes).
How do I get the results?
The ECFMG (for IMGs) or the NBME (for USMGs) will email you the results, they'll just say it's ready, they won't give you the details. Then you have to go to your OASIS account and there you will find a PDF file, download it and you will get the details;
-Pass or Fail
-Three digit score
-System/Discipline bar graph performance
