Listening Does it matter how long you take to prepare step 1?

You guys probably know this better, so I am posting this here. I am still a student but have taken over 11 months to write step 1. Does this get asked at interviews?

No. They only care if there is attempt(s). No one will know how many months did you study for exam. The other point, they prefer fresh graduates.
