For each "Testing Period" in the above schedule, Step 2 CS scores are released every Wednesday over a corresponding four- to five-week "Reporting Period". It is expected that results for the vast majority of examinees who take the exam during the testing period will be reported on the first Wednesday of the Reporting Period. Results for 98%-99% of examinees who take the exam during the testing period were reported by the third Wednesday in a Reporting Period. For a small percentage of examinees (1%-2%), it is important to note that scoring and quality assurance may be not completed in time for these examinees to be reported by the first three reporting dates; these will typically be examinees who took the exam in the latter part of the testing period. Results for these examinees will be reported each week throughout the reporting period, and should be reported no later than the last day of the score reporting period.
The schedule for reporting Step 2 CS scores in the second half of 2012 is still being finalized, and will be posted to this site later in the summer of 2011. Please note, however, that test dates during the second half of 2012 will continue to open 12 months in advance, and examinees can schedule their Step 2 CS exams for available test dates during this period.
