    I took Step 1 and 2CK in the summer before final year and then Step 2CS straight after finals - made sense at the time to try to combine the revision and am glad I did.

    Good luck!

    Hi,

    According to the guildines per USMLE, you are eligible to give the exam after your preclinals i.e after 2nd year.

    But even the 3rd year topics are included in the Step 1.

    From what I have seen, it is best to give the exam after or during the end of the 3rd year. If not, at the beginning of your internship.
