Even I am waiting for the results. Did your permit link disappear?
Is disappearance of permit link related to release of result?

No, you will not, after you take your exam, when you click on the permit, it says that it is no loner available.

The permit is the paper which you took with you at the time of your exam, with the CIN on it :P
Check IWA for it

I called ECFMG and they said my score won't be released today..
and she added that they r allowed up to 6 weeks before announcing the score i took mine 17th. so i believe any one who took his exam after the 17th won't get the result this week

NBME3: offline
UWSA: 258
Step 2 ck: 257

First of all i've got to emphasize that the closest SA to my score was UWSA .. only one point difference ... and this was the last assessment I took.

The first assessment to take was NBME4: I took it after I finished all my studying and doing UWQB and revising it again once. U want to start ur assessment with a reliable Form(according to what people say) to see where u stand.I took it online. The performance profile is very important thatz why Online is better than offline.

One week later I took NBME 1: They say itz the easiest but there are many challenging questions + It covers some topics that weren't in NBME 4. Online.

One week later I took NBME 2: also one of the most reliable SA forms .. I wanted to see improvement from NBME 4 and it was very useful. I took it online as well.

One week later I took UWSA: By that point, I set my mind that this was the real exam and that I had to get a really good score.

I took the real exam 6 weeks later which I wasn't sure at the time if it was a good choice or not. I took NBME 3 offline within these 6 weeks because I thought 6 weeks without an SA exam isn't a good idea. They said itz the toughest so i didn't really want to know my score so not to shake my confidence... so i just took it offline. Every NBME is important and they contain topics that were not covered in the UWQB particuarly the initial investigations in a newly diagnosed HTN patient among others.

Between one SA and the other I revised the Form and then I'll spend the next few days studying the weak areas according to my performance profile and I have to say this was the most useful time span in my whole studying time because u start concentrating on certain subject instead of studying everything ... Hope this helps .. Feel free to ask
