CS / CK Dates for "Match Day 2018"

To have your scores back in time to apply in the first wave of the Match which opens in September 2017 with a Match day in March 2018, you should schedule to take your exams by the following dates:

 


 

 

Step 2 CS

For examinees who test from:           The scores will be reported between: 
May 21st - July 15th 2017 August 16th - September 13th 2017
July 16th - September 9th 2017 October 11th - November 8th 2017

 

Key to success:  To insure that your scores are available,  you should plan on getting the CS done by July 15th 2017 if possible.


Step 2 CK

For step 2 CK the scores are generally reported within 4 weeks, so you can take it as late as mid August and still have the scores available for the opening of the match.   Since there are often delays in reporting during this busy time,  it best to be safe and get your exam done by the end of July!

Key to success:  Since the CS is harder to schedule and takes longer to get the scores back, it's sometimes better to get the CS done first and then battle the CK.

 


 

Summary:

Get CS done by July 15th 2017

Get CK done by end of July (best) or the latest by August 15th 2017

Key to Success:  Getting Great Scores is the ultimate key to opening doors.  So take it when you are the most prepared and likely to get your best scores!!!

Quoting flavio:
Which is usually the deadline for ECFMG certification?
I'm an IMG...I've read that you can do STEP 2 CS until the 31st of December 2017 to apply for 2018 match, is it right?

To participate in the Match, NRMP requires that the passing results of all exams required for ECFMG Certification (USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 2 CS) are available by the NRMP Rank Order List Certification deadline.
