Take it in July, there has been a tendency over the last 3 years or more, that they delay results for the people of August, this and last year are examples that you can search in the forum. Plan ahead, and take it on July (my results got delayed)

thank you so much!
Do I take it towards the end of july? when do I expect the results?
I see that the application date changes a little every year.. so relative to that.. how many days in advance should one take Ck ?
Thanks for your time!
And wish you all the best for the match!

For the people of July it took the same as any other date 3-4 weeks depending on the date. You can take it in the last week of July, but if you are planning ahead, I suggest you to take it in the middle of July, just to be on the safe side. This year is unique that applications started Sept 15, but you should plan ahead as if the applications will start Sept 1st as usual (because sounds like this year was an exception). Anyways, good luck.
