Calendar When to take the exam to get the results by April 15?

Hi all,

I have a problem that I was wondering if someone can please help me out with. When is the LAST possible day/date that I can take the exam on if I MUST get my results by 4/15 (school deadline)? PLease let me know (I have heard that it takes 3 Wednesdays to get the results, but then someone did tell me there is something about which counts as your "first Wednesday" depending on which day of the week you take the exam...I don't understand is very well...so, please tell me what is the last possible date I can take my exam and still get my results in before 4/15. THANK YOU!!!!

Arrow Take it by 23, 24, or 25 March 2011

It's always the Third Wednesday if you take the exam on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
It's always the Fourth Wednesday if you take the exam on Monday, or Tuesday.

This is explained by Lee here
When do we get the results

So in your case, you have to take the exam on 23, 24, 25 March 2011 (or before it) to get your results on April 13. If you take the exam after those days, you'll get the results on April 20 and later.

Please note, that this rule does not always apply. The ECMFG and the NBME might sometimes experience delays if they receive many applications, or several holidays, ..etc
