in the upper right corner it says : Information current as of:
13 Aug 2013 .. maybe they didn't just update it , if they update it to 14th and the result didn't come up , then maybe we have to wait another week.

I wonder if all this is related to the Outlook/Hotmail problem. Maybe there's a delay because they can't email us our results? Just a wild guess.

What's also weird is that Outlook/Hotmail says they'll update us on the status of their problem by 2:00 pm, which is when ECFMG will prolly update us too. Hmm...the plot thickens.

Dear Student Doctor,
The August 14, 2013 USMLE Step 2 CS results have been delayed due to score changes and making sure the quality of passing score is valid for the upcoming match year. I hope you understand this matter and please do not hesitate to contact NBME for any questions you may have. In the mean time please understand this delay is for your benefit, since the passing mark will be adjusted to pass more test takers from other 2013 reporting periods. Also there will be no reporting on the September 11, 2013.
Thank you for your patience

I don't know.. i can't believe it

1st : if this is true , why didn't they just announce it on the website or at least sent emails to everyone , saying so ?? why would they send it to AMGs ?

2nd : the website hasn't been updated yet !

3rd : if this is true, when i called them , why didn't the representative tell me that ??

Nothing can be said for sure except the fact that our result is delayed. I dont trust the EXTERNAL LINK as well.

Seriously, please someone call them. I would call myself but my mom's asleep and I can't right now. We just need to confirm the following:

1) That email sent by the NMBE was true.

2) If it applies to IMGs too.

Here's the number: 215-386-5900.

If you call, I assure you that it will be greatly appreciated. And whomever does so will be cheered and celebrated for generations to come for their bravery and general all-round awesomeness.

But can somebody from this forum call the NBME people and confirm everything since i am sitting overseas!!?

1) I just called, the machine is saying that due to heavy load call later

2)As for the above post, Wait, does that mean that they are failing people to "adjust" the passing rate of future test takers or "adjusting" the passing rate of people who have already taken the exam. This is just insane.

Dear Student Doctor,
The August 14, 2013 USMLE Step 2 CS results have been delayed due to score changes and making sure the quality of passing score is valid for the upcoming match year. I hope you understand this matter and please do not hesitate to contact NBME for any questions you may have. In the mean time please understand this delay is for your benefit, since the passing mark will be adjusted to pass more test takers from other 2013 reporting periods. Also there will be no reporting on the September 11, 2013.
Thank you for your patience"

SDN people are usually good at separating rumor from truth. And they say it doesn't make any sense for NBME to tell us they're passing more people. Whatever the reason for the delay, I don't think that email is true.

A couple AMGs confirm that they did not get the email in their NBME portal. Here's what they said:

"Nothing on our nbme site. Trolls freakin people out.


The only message I found is (which has been on the usmle website for months):

For each "Testing Period" in the above schedule, Step 2 CS scores are released every Wednesday over a corresponding four-to five-week "Reporting Period." It is expected that results for the vast majority of examinees who take the exam during the testing period will be reported on the first Wednesday of the Reporting Period. Results for 98%-99% of examinees who take the exam during the testing period are reported by the third Wednesday in a Reporting Period. For a small percentage of examinees (1%-2%), scoring and quality assurance may be not completed in time for these examinees to be reported by the first three reporting dates; these will typically be examinees who took the exam in the latter part of the testing period. "

For me, the tone of the email is suspect.
"In the mean time please understand this delay is for your benefit, since the passing mark will be adjusted to pass more test takers from other 2013 reporting periods."

The NBME have never struck me as a particularly beneficent bunch of mofos. :P If anything, I wouldn't put it beyond them to fail more people to get more funds.

This is probably nothing more than a standard delay, and a standard chance remains that I flunk next week. Crap. I really wanted to buy the lowering of passing standards implication. :P

Ok, so just spoke to them,

1) they said, they have released a couple of scores today. And that the scores will be released on the 11th of September as well. When, I asked them about the NBME notification about no score on the 11th, they said, they haven't been notified of that yet.

So I have absolutely no idea what is going on.

Maybe they release the "pass" today. Others need to be adjusted..maybe?

You guy's need to relax. The result will be out when its time for it to come out. Please stop the rumour mongering. The reporting period is between Aug 14 - Sept 11. No one guaranteed it's going to be out on Aug 14.

Somebody on SDN also called ECFMG, and this is what they said:

"Just called ECFMG to verify this rumor (and this is based on the person i spoke to so believe what you will)... the representative said there is NO DELAY in reporting scores and that if you haven't received an email by this morning... then your score is not out this week. so much for wasting an entire night and half a day freaking out "

In other words...I'm going back to studying inshaAllah. See ya'll again next week!!

well, i guess that's why it's called a reporting period.. potentially, no cs scores could have gone out today, but it wouldn't matter because they already told us that we would be getting our scores within a time period. come to think of it, the usmle website posted the score report delay for step 2 ck a month in advance, so likely any cs reporting delays would have been posted ahead of time... just our obsessiveness to get the score today

no thats not our fault ,they said the vast majority will have it on the first wednesday,thats on their website,but c'mon guys
we are not dealing with devils here so that in addition to the 2 months waiting period ,they send emails saying that the failing rates are high to the extent that we have to adjust it,and you are not getting your rsult today(evil laugh)
i am not buying these emails thing,lets just calm down,relax,we took the exam and there should be a result sometime
Good luck everyone
We all prepared,did the best we could,and we all did mistakes,i made lots of them and hoping for the best,thats normal coz no one is perfect
so lets just postpone our celebrations till next week isA

WHY Is it suspicious? Because a handful of people in this forum did not get their scores?
ECFMG NEVER stated when exactly they will release your particular score. It could be any wednesday in the report period.
And whats up with people refreshing OASIS every 2 minutes? seriously? You need to chill... there is nothing you can do to get your score any sooner!

Probability than nobody in the forum got results, and this line was follow by 15,000 look ups is equal ZERO.

You do not need to chill me. I'm analyzing the fact.

Alright folks, let's all calm down here. No need to argue.

I spoke to few AMGs I know and they said so far none of their friends have received any result or notification about the delay. So this is just a rumor email which I guess if you put a thought into it, clearly seems fake.

I can understand the wait is tough but believe in yourself and in God. Everything will turn out to be alright.

Best wishes for next week

IMG here, took CS June 27 in ATL. No result, no notification yet.

It is a bit surprising but with USMLE, ECFMG and such, not so much. I totally don't buy the email thing. I just wonder who'd be so evil to forge something like that.

Anyway, let's keep waiting. I wouldn't be surprised if something came tomorrow early morning. But maybe we'll have to wait until next week.

Oh, and finally, I know it's good intention and means no harm but please, no mention of God in this forum. It should remain religion-free. Some people don't believe in God or don't have the same system of beliefs. Thanks.
