    Trick worked. Passed. 231. Did not have time to do any of the nbme or uworld practice exams. I basically just did the uworld qbank questions. Spent the last two days before the exam studying for CCS using the uworld cases.

    I only took mine 2 weeks ago, but the FSMB site says "Your Step 3 application has expired. You may begin a new Step 3 application at your convenience." and there's no permit link on the NBME site. Do people ever get their scores back this quickly?

    My second day was Tuesday 10/2 so technically 3 Wednesdays ago but really only 2.5 weeks ago and I have the same. Hopefully that means we passed.

    Mine was 10/6, so this coming Wednesday will be three days short of 3 weeks. Looking forward to hopefully never having to worry about the USMLE again!

    Congratulations to those who passed and those who haven’t checked and passed.

    I have a question. I took my exam on 10/17 and 10/18. When should I expect the result to come out.?

    Trick worked for me

    Passed

    If your last test day on Monday or Tuesday then expect the result by the 4th Wednesday.

    By the way, my status was changed 6 days before the result

    Bye bye USMLE, you won’t be missed for sure

    Congratulations on being done with the USMLE's.
    6 days before ? You mean status on the FSMB website ? also is your eligibility period still active ?my test days were 10/1 and 10/8 , I am expecting my result coming week so following this thread to get any clues to the passing status before the actual score report.

    You'll probably get your score next Wednesday. I noticed my status change on the Saturday before.

    Thanks, my permit link disappeared on the step 3 interactive website. The FSMB status remains the same as before, that of an approved application, my eligibility period for the test was September - November. So hopefully the status will change to expired on the fsmb soon , and God not with that reapply link. CCS has me worried.checking the websites like OCD.

    This is a good sign. Let us know when your status changes to expired, without the yellow sign of course.

    Expired- no link to reapply
    Someone mentioned they had a link to reapply after initially having no link. Has this happened to anyone else??

    My permit link disappeared yesterday and fsmb showed expired this morning.

    That is horrible , hope that doesn't happen to us or anyone , now I will be checking that website like crazy, I think there's no surety until you get the actual score report. Good Luck.

    If you can't see the link then you passed?

    Same. Hope that isn’t a bad sign. Everyone on this thread said permit gone on Sunday and status change on Monday or Tuesday.

    That's what I knew from this forum and friends who took the test before me. I hope this is final for us and there's no unwanted change before the score comes out Wednesday AM .

    Less than 2 days before scores are released! I know this trick has worked for a lot of people but can’t help but think they fixed the glitch or something.

    Is it safe to assume if your status is still expired with no link, you passed? Hope it doesn’t change at 11pm tmr night to include a link. I didn’t feel too confident coming out of that exam.

    Some people here said that their FSMB status expired earlier than people were saying. In my case it expired early morning of last Friday and the permit link had disappeared Thursday itself. We should now just wait for the score report on the candidate website. Even I had very bad feelings about my test day, but odds are more in favor of us passing.If at all there is a further change it should have been by now or should be by tomorrow morning.

    That trick works even when the FSMB status expires the Friday before the score report day. Passed with 210 :(( Anyway done with the USMLE's forever for the good or worse.

    Trick works. Score 232
    Prep: UW qbank, biostats + CCS cases (completed around 30)
    UW assessment: 199 2 weeks before exam

    I walked out of that exam feeling like I failed it. I was 99% sure I failed the exam. I messed up on at 7/13 cases. Felt like I blindly guessed on at least 50% of the MCQs on both days. Good luck to everyone waiting for the score.

    So my permit just disappeared from the candidate website but the status on FSMB website hasn’t changed and says approved. What does this mean?!

    I took mine 10/18, 10/19 and my permit is gone. Still "approved." I think it is too quick for us to get it back this week. Ill let you know if it changes. Please let me know when yours changes.

    I took mine 10/25, 10/29, any eligibility was ending at 10/31. I don't see the permit but is it to do w my eligibility rather than anything else? I found the exam tough.
    Status:Approved still. Fingers crossed hope we all pass

    Since your last day was 2 days before 31 st. You will most likely get your result the third Wednesday starting the week following the 31st. I have heard people getting their results sooner though.

    You are totally Right, Mine disappear Friday to saturday midnight, No link to re-apply. So it is true , you can have your link and permit disappear 5-6 days before.

    Trust in the system guys, it works, if no link to reapply shows after it says "Experied, you may apply at your earliest convience" you are good to go.

    CONGRATS!!!!!! Now let the match season start ( for some, it started hehee )

    Congratulations! I took my exam on 26 and 29 of October (which was Monday). Today was 3rd Wednesday and I didn't receive a result. So it seems that I need to wait for the 4th Wednesday. For now my eligibility period is until November 30 and it shows that I am still eligible. What changes should be in my case if I passed?
    Thank you in advance.

    I think my eligibility expired and that made the difference in disappearance of scheduling permit. But our result might be coming next week
