Default New format exam takers on Aug 2nd

To all my friends who took their Step 2 ck exam on 2nd Aug and had the new format:

I called up ECFMG regarding the results and was told we would have to wait till Sep 28th.
I was shatterd b'cos I had scheduled my exam for 2ng Aug after reading their news bulletin which clearly says:

New format introduction: ON OR AROUND AUG 3RD
Delay in score reporting: FROM AUG 3RD TO MID-SEPTEMBER.

I pointed this out to the lady who spoke to me,All she had to say was that my result would be delayed, there was nothing that could be done.

I was hoping to have my result ready before starting to apply on Sep 1st, and this is a big blow on me...

Anybody on the same boat, please call up ECFMG, e-mail them, and please point out the fact that the announcement says that though changes can start anytime around 3rd august, the delay in reporting would be FROM 3rd Aug, according to them.

Further, they have made a new announcement saying ALL those who took their exams in new format will have a delay.

It is technically not possible to evaluate without performance data on the new format, but maybe they can count those new questions as dummy and evaluate our performance based on the rest of the exam.

It was not our fault we got the new format exam and it is unfair that we have to wait.
