    you can't cancel the USMLE
    the test fee ~600$ is not refundable
    you can only take the test, or extend the period(for a fee)
    if you dont take the test or extend, it will expire - then you have to register again = ~ $600

    you can cancel or reschedule the test appointment date, within the 3month period, with prometric. (if you reschedule too late (~5days) they may charge a fee).

    DO NOT SCHEDULE THE TEST (appointment date with prometric) AND NOT GO.
    i think it shows up on the transcript as an attempt.

      Nah, you have two days to reschedule, even if you don't show.
      I don't know what happens if you schedule, don't show, and don't reschedule.

        I'm not sure if this is a joke but I laughed really hard when I saw the post.

        I guess with all these weeks of study, Step 1 has become as inescapable a fact of life as "death and taxes." I never thought that I could "cancel" it.
        The OP may be a DO student in which case, the USMLE is optional.

          "Except as otherwise specified below, to receive a score on Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 3, you must begin every block of the test: If you do not begin every block, no results are reported, and the "incomplete examination" attempt appears on your USMLE transcript. If you register for but do not begin an examination, no record of the test will appear on your transcript."

          I thought if you don't show, no record on the transcript.
