USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK – Scheduled Score Delays in 2023

Posted September 27, 2022

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 mid-April through mid-June 2023 - more specific information will be posted January 2023
  • Step 2 CK examinees testing early June through late July 2023 - more specific information will be posted February 2023

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.
