Default Optimal time for appearing for step 2CS

Hello everyone,
I am an IMG from India. USMLE steps history- Step 1 alone.
Am currently preparing for Step 2 CK which i plan to write in the mid week of June. Step 2 CS in mid August. I read that the score reports for Step 2 CS can be delayed as late as Nov if i write in mid Aug.

Will the process of applying for ECFMG certification get delayed? Will i be able to upload my CS results onto ERAS even late NOV??
Does that mean i cant apply for the 2016 Match?? should i advance the dates of my CS exam to late June so that my results will be available before september??

Can you pls guide me through this.
Thanks in advance.

Best wishes....

Yes it will be good if you have your results b4 sept 15, for which you should give cs exam b4 july 11. you cn take cs later n schedule ur cs b4 that. though you cn apply late as well but your chances of matching/getting interviews
are affected.
