Listening Will be doing Step 1 in Dubai or Abu Dhabi

Hello everybody am new here
About me: I've just decided to do USMLE step 1, I am currently in 3rd year out of 5 years medical school. I need the info below to make my mind whether to sit for step 1 now or after graduation, but I really hope for (now).
I'll finish this year by the end of June, but if I decided to do step 1, I'll start studying immediately since we already study pathology, & microbiology. So I'll finish (half) of these two for USMLE by June + if I could one (whole) subject like anatomy for example if I tried hard. But I have only 2 months vacation before starting the 4th year. I am not studying in Dubai but will spend my vacation & do the test in Dubai.
Accordingly:
1- (when) is my highest priority regarding USMLE step 1 dates?
2- according to that date, will that period be enough for me to finish studying the courses & review them thoroughly?
3- total fees for USMLE step 1 in Dubai & is there any difference in Abu Dhabi?
4- do i need to have a study partner when I arrive to Dubai? do i need a study partner now in my country if I decided to start studying for it?
5- any other pages or groups to help me in references & methods in Facebook?

Sorry for asking a lot but I really searched for hours for answers regarding Dubai only & all I got was general info. Please write whatever u know about USMLE in Dubai

Am sleepy but too excited to sleep ... Waiting for some encouraging replies

Find USMLE Students in Dubai here
http://www.usmle-forums.com/tags/Dubai-.html
You can discuss with them about USMLE prep in Dubai.

Price is no different between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Two months is usually not enough, you need at least 3 to 4 months (provided your pathology information is still fresh).

As for the Study Partner it depends on your personality, check here
Do we need a USMLE study partner?
