Go to the ECFMG website. Click on online services. Then click on Interactive Web Applications (IWA). Create a new USMLE account. Then, you can login and apply for the tests. First, you need to start an application for ECFMG certification (that's $65 I think). But the application for Step 1 costs around $850 plus and international test delivery surcharge that depends on the country you'll be taking the exam in. For me the total cost was around $1065 I think. Go to the ECFMG website. Read everything carefully. You'll get all the details there.

Default took my test

I finally took my test a 2 weeks ago and now Im waiting for my results.

how will I know when my test results are ready.????????

Right after the test you feel an impending doom.... is that good or bad sign?????

then Denial. Anger. Guilt.
Im currently bargaining while my results are released.
