Pakistan Prometric Islamabad, no exams in September??

I have been checking prometric's website for seats availability in September at the Islamabad center but apparently there is no seat available!!! Is it because they don't conduct USMLE in September as well like January? Any body has any idea?

I was really hoping I could get through with my exam in early September!!! But all slots full is better than not conducting the exam, means someone might chicken out and I might get a chance to book a slot.

I heard the same thing, that there's some problem at the lahore centre due to which the candidates had to be moved to other centres. Islamabad would be the natural choice as it's much closer to lahore. This could be the reason why no slots are available at this time. And step 1 is conducted on both wednesday and thursday.
