Help CS before Step 1, is it possible?

Hi everyone. I have some questions regarding my plan for USMLE. I was planning to give my step 1 this March but due to some important work I need to postpone it to some other date that is I need to extend my eligibility period. I had already extended once so now I need to pay the test fees again.

Also I am thinking of appearing for the Step 2 CS before doing my step1 in the USA since I have already registered for the CS exams this June. So if I give my step 2 CS before step 1 will there be any sort of difficulties? If so how can I proceed then?

Thanks and regards to all

Hey am actually paying the fees again for step one,my period ends in match too and i had already used my eligibility extension period. Are there any procedures we have to take for this or do we pretty much just let the time pass until march ends then we register again. Will this also appear on our transcript,Do u know,i mean the fact that we never took the exam in our period but did pay again to take the exam at a later date??

Now about CS,this will depend more on if u finished medical school or if u finished the first two to three years of med sch.It is clinical stuff so you should be able to give differentials and elicit some signs. I have done it already and i did pass. I finished med sch Iam IMG.I believe you can do it ,read FA and do the videos of cse
