Step 1 – Delay in Score Reporting

If you need to receive United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) Step 1 scores before July 8, 2020 it is recommended that you take the exam no later than May 3, 2020.

Most Step 1 scores are reported within four weeks of testing. However, because of necessary annual modifications to the test item pool, there will be a delay in reporting for some examinees who test beginning the week of May 4, 2020.

The target date for reporting Step 1 scores for most examinees testing the week of May 4, 2020 through mid-June will be Wednesday, July 8, 2020. For examinees whose circumstances require that they receive Step 1 scores before July 8, 2020, it is recommended that they take Step 1 no later than May 3, 2020.

Examinees should monitor the USMLE website for the latest information.
