Step 3 – delay in score reporting

Posted: October 21, 2020

If you need to receive your Step 3 score before March 17, 2021 it is recommended that you take the exam no later than December 31, 2020

Necessary annual modifications to the test item pool will result in a delay in reporting Step 3 scores for examinees who test in early 2021. The target date for reporting scores for most examinees testing in January and February 2021 is Wednesday, March 17, 2021. After this, the normal score reporting schedule (four weeks after testing) will resume. 

No USMLE Step 3 examinations will be administered January 1-14, 2021


Step 1 and Step 2 CK – score delays in 2021

Posted: October 07, 2020

Most 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 2021 - more specific information will be posted January 2021
  • Step 2 CK examinees testing early July through late August 2021 - more specific information will be posted March 2021

Why is this important to know?
If you need to receive a score before a certain date, plan to take that exam before the projected score delay windows to avoid missing deadlines.
