Question Usmle Step 3 Result Query

HI everyone,

I have scheduled my USMLE step 3 on August 24 and 25 which are Friday and Saturday. So, can I expect the result to come on September 12 Wednesday at 12 am or would I get my result on September 19 because I took the 2nd day of the exam on a Saturday?

Also, can you please explain if there would be any major difference if I did get my step 3 score on September 19 which is some 4 days after our applications when compared to me getting it on Sept 12th.

Thanks in advance.

Sometimes Step 3 results take longer than the usual 3-4 weeks that we see in Step 2 CK and Step 1.

In some instances, it might take up to 6-8 weeks.

This is because rating the CCS is not automated and has to be done manually by physicians and therefore it takes time.

You don't need Step 3 result for matching. You can apply first and then update the programs with your step 3 score.

Thank you for your reply Sabio.You have always been so helpful. I got the answer for the 2nd part of my question..
But regarding the 1st part, i wanted to know if taking the 2nd day of my exam on a '"Saturday" will cause my result to be delayed by an additional week or not ? because in the results thread you mentioned that

"Third or Fourth Wednesday?
-If you take your exam on Wednesday or Thursday or Friday, then you will get your results on the third Wednesday.
Example, a student took the exam on April 13th, 2011 (Wednesday) then the results is expected on May 4th, 2011 (Wednesday).
-If you take your exam on Saturday or Monday or Tuesday then you will get your results on the fourth Wednesday.
Example, a student took the exam on April 11th, 2011 (Monday) then the results is expected on May 4th, 2011 (Wednesday)"

Based on this since i am taking my exam on the August 24th , "Friday" (the first day of the exam) will i get it on the 3rd wednesday or will my score be delayed by a week because my 2nd day is a "saturday" ..Hope you understood my question this time. And once again thank you for your prompt responses.
