Scheduling test data

6/24/2014 11:34:35 PM
Hello. Could you help me about scheduling test data. I dont have clear idea of scheduling test data.

According to the 2014 USMLE bulletin, it says "When applying for Step 1 or Step 2 CK, you must select a three-month period,". So I thought I can decide the test data. I mean the three- month period. Actually I want to take the USMLE in Nov, Dec(2014), or Jan(2015).

However, I received the mail from ECFMG, and it said that my Eligibility Period is as follows.
Eligibility Begins: July 01, 2014
Eligibility Ends: September 30, 2014

Does this mean , I have to TAKE THE EXAM during this period or I have to DECIDE THE THREE MONTH PERIOD during this period?

If I have to take the test data during this eligibility period, I am not ready yet. Then do I still have to take the test during this period?

I dont understand the meaning on the USMLE bulletin "When applying for Step 1 or Step 2 CK, you must select a three-month period,".
What does this means?

Thank you for helping me!

yup thts true that u need to take 3 MONTH PERIOD ....and once u have choosen ur three month period u can give the exam on any date in those 3 mnth period .........but if suppose u r not prepared and u want to postpone it then u have this option of extending the eligibility period for NEXT 3 MNTHS for ex if u book the slot of JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER and coz of some reason not able to give exam then u can extend the slot to OCTOBER NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER but not beyond that .. so as a whole its 6 mnths ... extending the slot is chargeable of 50 dollars
