Frequently Asked Questions

USMLE Step 1 covers content in the following areas: Anatomy, behavioral sciences, biochemistry, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, and interdisciplinary topics, such as nutrition, genetics, and aging. Test items require students to interpret material contained in vignettes, graphs and tables, identify mechanisms of action, diagnose symptoms, ascertain causes, and generally apply knowledge of science to clinical problems.

Though Step 1 is now a pass/fail exam, it’s still crucial you pass this test, and the knowledge you gain preparing for Step 1 lays the foundation for Step 2 CK success and your success as a practicing physician.

The USMLE Step 1 is a one-day exam that is administered over an 8-hour testing session. It is divided into seven 60-minute blocks and as per the USMLE website, "the number of questions per block on a given examination form will vary, but will not exceed 40. The total number of items on the overall examination form will not exceed 280.
At Blueprint, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to prepping for Step 2 CK. Our tutors are trained to assess and cater to each student's unique study requirements. Instead of adhering to a rigid curriculum, our private tutors develop personalized plans tailored to individual needs. They can assist with specific sections, question types, or concepts, identify your strengths and weaknesses on the exam, create an effective study plan, and guide you in practicing with different problem sets.
We understand that sometimes students have specific preferences when it comes to choosing a tutor. If you have a specific tutor in mind, whether it's due to a recommendation from a friend or reading a positive review about a tutor's expertise, you can request to work with that tutor in your initial meeting with one of our dedicated Enrollment Advisors. This meeting is also a great opportunity to mention any other factors that may be important to you in finding your perfect tutor like time zone, specific content expertise, background, ESL experience, gender, and/or accommodations experience. Your Enrollment Advisor will make every effort to accommodate your request and pair you with your preferred MCAT tutor.

However, in the event that it is not feasible to match you with your requested tutor, please rest assured that we will still assign you a highly qualified Step 2 expert who possesses similar strengths and traits. All of our Med School tutors are extensively trained and experienced in Step 2 preparation, ensuring that they are fully equipped to help you achieve your goal score.
We have comprehensive policies in place to ensure a smooth and successful tutoring experience. To learn more about our tutoring policies, including information on homework, cancellations, code of conduct, and adding additional hours, we recommend reviewing our help article on Tutoring & Admissions Consulting Policies. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding our policies, feel free to reach out to our Student Success Team for assistance.
