Warning! Should we write USMLE Step 1 before the new changes?

Guys, some friends have asked me if writing Step 1 USMLE before the introduction of fewer but more clinically oriented questions has any advantage.

Any thoughts?

I disagree Hmmm

I don't think so
USMLE Step 1 is already full of clinical vignettes and I don't think they'll ever attempt a drastic change abruptly.

Warning! Oh yes

Oh yes,

You have to take the exam before 15. Because there will be less questions but no more non-clinical vignettes. This translates into even more difficult time management in the exam day.

Am sure people will be crying even more after May 15th.

Hurry up

Just go to the exam when you feel fully prepared regardless the type of questions. In my opinion, clinically oriented questions are generally easier than the dry basics if you are already graduated.

Goodluck
