Default Advice Needed Please

Hello Everyone. I am an IMG student currently entering my fifth year. I would like some advice. Would it be better if I took my Step 1 during this year or should I postpone it until I graduate? Medical School in my country is 6 years. I would love to listen to your experiences. Thank you

As an IMG I would recommend taking step 1 while still in medical school

However, if you can, you should defenitely seek some time off to prepare for it.

Approx 2-3 months should be adequate depending on ur prepardness
