If you need to receive Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK) scores before August 29, 2018, the USMLE program recommends that you take the exam no later than June 30, 2018.
Necessary modifications to the test item pool will result in a delay in reporting for some examinees who test beginning the week of June 30, 2018. The target date for reporting Step 2 CK scores for most examinees testing the week of June 30 through mid-August will be Wednesday, August 29, 2018.
For more information, examinees should refer to the full announcement on the USMLE website.
NOTE: When this announcement was originally posted on April 9, 2018, examinees were recommended to take exams on or before June 24 to ensure receiving scores before August 29. This update recommends that examinees take the exam on or before June 30 to ensure receiving a score before August 29.
