Calendar Step 3 and H1b Visa

If I want to give step 3 during the interview season (lets say in Nov 2012) while I am in the US
When should I apply to FSMB in order to give step 3 and get H1b Visa opportunity?

Thanks...

Yes. If you want to take Step 3 in November 2012, you have to wait until October 1st 2012 which is when the 2013 eligibility becomes available). The step 3 application closes in September of every year.
Even though you are taking it in November 2012, they call it 2013 eligibility because your step 3 eligibility stretches for 90 days from the day it's accepted and therefore it will likely extends through 2013.
