Hi guys
I would like to take the step 3 this year to strengthen my cv for match 2015 but I need time to be prepared.
I would like to know what is the LAST date to take the step 3 so that I can use the result for match 2015.

Warning!

Hi!

This is the official announcement of changes for 2014-2015 posted in the USMLE webpage:

http://www.usmle.org/pdfs/Changes_to...dout_FINAL.pdf

There you can read that because of the changes in the Step 3 at the end of this year there will be a substantial delay in score report. There you can see specific dates to pay attention.

Now to answer your question: If you want to have your step 3 score for the next year's match (March 2015), you have to clear the exam before October 2014.

It's what I just got from official FSMB website:


"IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING CHANGES TO STEP 3:

1.Registration for the current Step 3 examination will end July 18, 2014. Begin the USMLE Step 3 Application

2.Registration for the restructured Step 3 examination will begin August 2014.

3.No Step 3 examinations will be administered during most or all of October 2014.

4.There will be a substantial score delay following introduction of the restructured Step 3 examination in November 2014. The duration of the score delay will be determined by examinee volume during the early months of exam administration. Based on historic trends, we estimate that the first scores for Step 3 exams taken on or after November 1, 2014 will be released during the first week of April 2015."

Hi all,
I have one question for step 3. I have a plan to take CS in May. However, almost all seats are filled before may 17, so if I take CS after May 17, my result will be back in August. So after that, can I apply for step 3 in August to have an exam in September? But the website show that we have to apply step 3 before July 31 for the current one. Please give me any advice for that. I really appreciate for any suggestions.

Hi!
Well, that's a gray area, I really do not know. They way I interprete the annoucement is that the period between July 18 and the end of September is being reserved for all the people registered for the current format, and that registration for the new format will begin in August, but they will not be able to sit for the exam until November. BUT I really DO NOT know. I suggest you write to FSMB or USMLE for clarification.

Good luck!
