India Unavailability of Step 1 Prometric Dates in India

I'm planning to take my Step 1 exam by the month of August.

But there seems to be no dates available at either Delhi or Hyderabad Prometric centers till September 25!

Dates are available only at Allahabad testing center.

Can I wait a few more days and keep checking the site regularly to see if new slots open up at Delhi or Hyderabad?

Did anyone of you have an experience where you scheduled your exam with new slots being added time to time?

Can I hope and wait that new slots will be added in Hyderabad or should I schedule one in Allahabad right now?!

Thanks for your help!

I'd suggest booking one of those september end dates at your preferred centre, and meanwhile keep looking every other day for an earlier date in august and advance your test date if you are lucky enough to come across one. It can be done free of charge if its more than a month away from your original test date i believe.

Dates will always become available once you reach the month when you want to give the exam. I took my dates 2-3 weeks before and got them easily. So don't worry, focus on studying.

hey!
you need not worry about the dates. definitely the dates will be open before a month or 3 weeks earlier. so all you need to do is just focus on your studies. even i booked my exam date just few days back in july

DNB centers are totally different from the ones conducting USMLE steps.
