    Usmle step 1

    Hi there,
    I'm a 3rd year medical student in Pakistan and was thinking of writing my usmle step 1 exam soon.
    Should I take it at the end of 3rd year/beginning of 4th year or wait until I'm done with 4th year?
    I wanted to take it at the end of 3rd year so that I can go for an elective to the US after 4th year since many elective programs have step 1 completion as one of their requirements.
    What would you guys suggest?
    Thanks in advance

    My idea would be to go with your current plan. But, if you are still confused about the final decision, I would suggest you to ask the idea of your seniors who have taken the USMLE exams. The real time experience would be very much useful than asking the ideas of other people.

    do that in fourth year. Read kaplan microbiology pathology behavioral and pharma along with usual third year books, that way you would just have to prepare anatomy physio and biochem along with special patho in fourth year
