If you give take it in month of July when most of people are giving exam so that your score is going to get affected by that?

The USMLE Exam is not scored competitively, i.e your performance is not compared to those who have taken the exam with you at the same time, it's compared to a standard scale that has a Standard of Deviation that has been calculated over the last 6 months at least.

Therefore, it does not matter where or when you take any of the USMLE Steps.
