Default Delay in step 1 result for May- June 2014 exam takers

Hey guys, USMLE recently posted on their website that there will be a delay in the results of people taking their step 1 from May 12th - end June. They won't receive their results before July 9th. The reason stated was "because of necessary modifications to the test item pool".
What does this exactly mean? I can't help but think that the exam would be much harder/ out of this world questions. There have been delays in results in previous years. Does anyone know what effect does this have on the people taking the exam within that time frame?

That is very true. The only thing in our hands is our prep. I was aiming for last week of May but since my preparation is not up to par at the moment. Barely done with half of uworld I'm thinking about bumping it forward to June. What about you? How far along are you in your prep?
