Two Important News Regarding Step 2 CK
by StepTaker 08-20-2010, 02:51 PM

The USMLE website recently announced two important changes with regard to the USMLE Step 2 CK Exam.

First, they increased the three digit passing threshold from 185 to 189. This is congruous with the recent increase of USMLE Step 1 passing score.

Second, if you take your exam after August 12, 2010 you may expect that your score may not be available until October 6, 2010. This will definitely affect those applicants who were thinking that they'd be ECFMG certified by September 1st.
