yes, i think you can --if there is no delay with any of your credentials

but better to give before august 15th coz----who knows result may delay by 1 week or ecfmg certification may take 3-4 days late...(in case if you dont want to take risk)...

goodluck...

I am in the same boat. But I will take CK end of July just to be sure. People say CK results in August are often delayed (i do not know for how long) and ECFMG certification might be delayed as well (i do not know for how long either). Any other idea? Our CK score will not change much with one or two weeks to study more but applying one or two weeks late might significantly reduces our chance.

Due to modifications to the test pool, over the last 2-3 years, there has been a delay of scores of exams taken in August.

This is an example:
http://www.ecfmg.org/news/2011/06/22....twlwUfGx.dpbs

All the scores of exams taken throughout august are reported on september 26.

Im screwed because I just picked my elgibility period to start in august.

I guess I am screwed too bc my period doesn't start till august either. Just try to take it ASAP in August is the best thing we can aim for. Hopefully I'll be ready then.

Step 2 CK - Schedule For Score Reporting

Posted: June 19, 2013
Score reports for Step 2 CK are usually available within four weeks of testing. However, because of routine modifications to the test item pool, score reporting for most Step 2 CK examinations administered in late July and August will take longer. The target date for reporting Step 2 CK scores for most examinees testing in late July and August is Wednesday, September 25, 2013. For examinees whose circumstances require that they receive Step 2 CK scores before September 25, it is recommended that they take Step 2 CK no later than July 27, 2013.

As a reminder, please note that the test day is divided into eight 60-minute blocks, administered in one nine-hour testing session. The number of items per block on a given examination form will vary between 42 and 44 items. Examinees should check the number of items that will be displayed at the beginning of each block. The total number of items on the overall examination form will be approximately 350 items.
