USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK – Scheduled Score Delays in 2022

Most United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) Step 1 and Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK) scores are reported within 3-4 weeks of testing. However, because of necessary annual modifications to the test item pools, delays occur for examinees who test at certain times of the year. Please be aware that examinees testing during the following dates may experience delays in score reporting:

  • Step 1 examinees testing early May through early July 2022 – more specific information will be posted January 2022
  • Step 2 CK examinees testing early July through late early August 2022 – more specific information will be posted March 2022

Why is this important to know?

If you need to receive a score before a certain date, plan to take that exam before the testing dates with projected score delay windows to avoid missing deadlines.

Examinees should monitor the USMLE website for the latest information.
