Changes made to the Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) examination in mid-2012 required a delay in the reporting of scores of examinees tested from June 17, 2012 through August 25, 2012.

Originally the expected date of the first release of scores for this group of examinees was October 3, 2012. However, the date for the first release of scores is now expected to be October 10, 2012.

However, examinees who test on or before December 31, 2012 will have their results reported in time for the 2013 Match, USMLE website reported.
