i gave step one on 11th dec and it was a fight between me and clock ticking and clock won in most blocks. seemed like usmle people knew what students dont prepare and werent happy to ask tht at all....

-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).

Same with me. First 6 blocks were good.
Missed 3 Questions in 7 th block.
And the final block had lengthiest questions, just wanted to finish it off.

What happens if you hold SHIFT with refresh or try viewing the page from a different browser? Does your link still appear then?

PneuX 01-08-2014 05:26 AM

Step1 still nobody as well. But step3 guys got their result today. Maybe they are just a little late today.

No, what I wanted to say is that it would be weird if they only released step 3 but NONE of step2 or step1.

Step 3 results typically come out on a Tuesday night whereas everyone else's comes out on a Wednesday morning. Assuming that the release of results requires the physical presence of an ECFMG employee in their office, results may be slightly delayed due to the weather conditions currently in Philadelphia. I would still expect them to come out very soon. Let's all relax and wait and see.

aspirant5 01-08-2014 05:38 AM

it's killing me too...i gave mine on 20th of december. Ideally it's the 19th day today.. and they say it takes minimum of 21 days ,,what do u guys think ..should i get it today? no email as yet

PneuX 01-08-2014 05:39 AM

Thank you weatherman for support!!! :)

On my score report page it says "Information current as of: 07 Jan 2014" So maybe they haven't updated their database yet :toosad:

I just checked the conditions in Philly on weather.com, seemed fine to me..cold, but fine.

Give them some time people, they are never 100% on the dot. I got my results as late as noon EST in the past. Let's not make people jump from notifications until the results start coming in. We have waited close to a month, we can wait a few more minutes or even a couple of hours :)

aliawn88 01-08-2014 05:56 AM

don't call ecfmg for the result

Go this page:

Enter the values in the three respective fields and you can tell them like "Best 20% of test takers" or so.
