    u can take step1 in the beginning of jan, but most likely these spots are already filled.

    the council is meeting to talk about the step1 passing score, and the change will be implemented for all students testing on jan1 and past...
    but remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.

    ECFMG has nothing do with the test.....if youre really concerned that the passing is going from a 182 to a 190, youre not ready

    This will raise the bar a bit higher. So I would suggest you study harder...

    I went to usmle.org and there is no mention of increasing the pass level for step 2. Also, where are people getting this new passing score of 190? The last increase was a three point increase from 179 to 182. I would expect the new pass score would be around 185. A 8 point increase seems like quite a large increment.

    Doesnt mean the test will get harder.....the test changes every single year to remove "easy" questions and to add experimental questions
