this is highly depended upon the journal reviewing process which will be observed within one year from its Emerging Sources Citation Index registration.
Best Wishes.

Dear Waheed,
Tming does not matter a lot for ESCI indexing..... I am highlighting some parts which can be little useful for your questions answer.
What are the requirements for indexing?
The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) aims to extend the scope of publications in the Web of Science to include high-quality, peer reviewed publications. It ensures important research is visible in the Web of Science Core Collection even if it is not yet internationally recognized.
The selection process is the first step in applying to other Web of Science indexes. These include the Science Citation Index (SCI), Social Science Citation Index (SSCI), and Arts and Humanities Citation Index (AHCI).
Journals accepted for coverage must meet the following criteria:
· Timing for evaluation follows Clarivate Analytics’ priorities for expanding database coverage, rather than the date that journals were submitted for evaluation. If a journal is accepted from the ESCI to another database it will no longer be covered in the ESCI. Journals which are indexed can opt out of consideration for further evaluation if they need to improve their citation profile.
· Journals indexed in the ESCI will not receive Impact Factors. However, citations from the ESCI will be included in the citation counts for Journal Citation Reports. As such, citations from the ESCI will contribute to the Impact Factors of other journals.
· If your journal is indexed in the ESCI it will be discoverable on Web of Science with full citation counts, author information and other enrichment.
Hope it help you out.

Sir Ashish Thakur Let suppose an ESCI journal has cite score above 2 from last three years. What are its chances to become SCI in the fourth year?

This all depends on clarivate analytics.
First important things is whether it extended for the web of sciences with full range of subject area to include high quality or not ? Citations from the ESCI will be included in the citation counts for Journal Citation Reports. As such, citations from the ESCI will contribute to the Impact Factors of other journals. Articles in ESCI indexed journals will be included in an author’s h-index calculation . Cite score uses 3 year while JCR impact factor 2 eyars. CiteScore is based on the citations recorded in the Scopus database rather than in JCR, and those citations are collected for articles published in the preceding three years instead of two or five.
Sometime impact factor is high, cite score is less though they are considered as potential journals because collections articles reviewed are very high in number line NATURE.
I think 2 is little less cite score. If cite score is 2 but, impact factor is 5 or 6 and collection of articles for journal is high then it may be considered in SCI category specially in engineering journals. It may not enrich there for SCI. If cite score is 2 and impact factor is less then 2, ESCI journal will not be included to cover in SCI.
Hope it work out for you.

According to Web of Science, ESCI Journal can be included in Science Citation Index (SCI), Social Science Citation Index (SSCI), or Arts and Humanities Citation Index (AHCI), if they meet "Impact Criteria".
Accordingly, journals are included in Web of Science Core Collection (SCI, SSCI, AHCI, and ESCI) if they meet 2 criteria, namely; 1) Quality 2) Impact. The "Quality criteria" comprises 24 sub-criterion, while the "Impact criterion" consist of 4 sub-criteria.
Hence, any journal captured in ESCI have already meet the quality criteria , therefore the quality criteria is the only requirement for journal to be considered in ESCI. Similarly, any journal on ESCI must wait to meet the "Impact Criteria", which can take time, and may be impossible to be predicted. This is because the Impact Criteria is evaluated according to the number of citations the journal is receiving, the performance of authors who published in the journal before, and the number of cross-references between journals in web of science, etc. Waheed Ur Rehman .
