    Prometric USMLE Testing Center

    Advertisements



    Hi guys, does anyone know what forms we need to bring on our test date? I know we need a copy of a our international medical licensing permit, drivers license. Anything else?

    Thx!

    it should say on the scheduling permit exactly what you need. some snacks and lunch would be a good idea too

    It says no food is allowed into the testing center. I'm guessing you have to find a nearby place where you'll eat for lunch.

    I took food in there. I'm pretty sure they mean you're not supposed to take food into the testing area.

    I remember when i took my mcat they made me throw my sandwich out because they didn't want the lockers to be infested with bugs. It was annoying but whatever. I'm not wasting any more food.

    hopefully, you're a girl...............



    You can usually bring snacks and store them in the locker provided. If there is any doubt, call the center in advance. Also remember to bring your drivers license.

    I took it today and I was allowed to bring food. I just had to store it in the locker and eat on my breaks. Nothing at all is allowed in the testing area, I couldn't even bring in my chapstick.

    i was allowed food as well at the locker, just not the testing area. How could they expect people to do a timed test and "go out" for lunch. I wonder if the test length has anything to do w allowing food or not. Either way never heard of anyone who couldn't bring food/snacks to their step exam. Good luck!
