The CCS Portion is on day 2 of the 2 day test. The second day will consist of:
|Step 3 Section||Time allotted|
|Multiple Choice Tutorial||5 minutes (Optional)|
|Block 1 – Multiple Choice||45 minutes|
|Block 2 – Multiple Choice||45 minutes|
|Block 3 – Multiple Choice||45 minutes|
|Block 4 – Multiple Choice||45 minutes|
|Block 5 – Multiple Choice||45 minutes|
|Block 6 – Multiple Choice||45 minutes|
|CCS Tutorial||7 minutes (Optional)|
|8 x 10 min cases*||80 minutes|
|7 x 20 min cases*||140 minutes|
|Break time||45 min|
|Total Time||547 min (approx 9 hrs)|
*Note that the 10 min and 20 min cases are mixed together. You will not have 8 x 10 min cases and 7 x 20 min cases. There is a total of 13 total cases that you will see. It is also possible depending on the day to have a different mix of 10 min and 20 min cases, but the above breakdown is the most common scenario. The 45 min break time will be interspersed throughout the entire 9 hour day. You of course can finish early if you do not utilize all the available time given.
For those looking just for a short answer, you have 3 hours 40 min total time allotted just to complete the CCS Cases. You may not use the entire time (some cases will finish earlier than the allotted time if you have completed them successfully).
Our program has a good mix of 10 min and 20 min cases to practice from. You can try two cases for free here. Check us out.
