Warning! Changes to step 3 come Jan 2014?

I've heard tell of some plan in the works to revamp the step 3 system come jan 2014, which includes incorporating a lot of step 1 components into the exam. Since its hearsay i'd like to be skeptical about it!

Has anyone else heard about this?

Default Changes are coming

There will be changes in 2014, but they don't say when exactly it will happen. The only thing that is clear is that the two-day single exam will become 2 separate exams. There is no clear info about what exactly is going to be changed in the content of the exam. I've also heard that the basic science content will be increased, but the official announcement is not clear about it.
