When you become a D4 in May, you will be eligible to register for the NBDE part II exam. Once you register and pay the exam fee on the ADA website, please email the Registrar to let them know because they have to login into the NBDE website and approve your request to take the exam (to verify that you are eligible to take the exam). Once your request is approved, you should receive an email from the ADA indicating that you may contact Prometric to schedule your exam date.

Please note: Your eligibility to take NBDE part II cannot be approved until May when you become a D4, after all final grades are entered. Please do not register prior to all D3 Winter Term grades are posted.

Also, the ADA requests that you read the Exam Guide 2016 for NBDE II before registering for the NBDE II. Make sure that you understand their 6 month rule:

Once your application is processed you are eligible to test for a six (6) month period. If you do not schedule a testing appointment, and/or take the NBDE Part II during this period, you will have to submit a new application and fee. The eligibility period will not be extended and you will forfeit your examination fee." (pg. 19)
