Question Applying for CS before taking CK.

hi I have a question, Please help me out. Can an IMG apply for both step 2 CK and CS at the same time and schedule them on separate dates? because Step 2 CS requires around 6 weeks of preparation and one cant schedule it just after 6 weeks of CK result. They need to apply much early for CS. So if an IMG schedules CK in April and applies for CS in March to schedule it in August, it is convenient for him. Is it actually possible to apply for CS even before taking CK exam which has already been scheduled in April. Please let me know. Thank you

You can apply the way you like at the time you like, there's no specific sequence.

Default Yes.

Yes, its is possible and it is done.

You schedule your own dates for cs and ck , so it will not matter if you apply in the same day for both even and schedule your CK 5 days, or 5 months after your CS..



CS can be given even before step 1.

Im gonna be applying for my CS and CK next month on the same day, so I can pay all together, and will schedule my CS date hopefully feb and CK in april.

Hope this helped.
