Do Attempts matter in step 1 & step 2ck? - Ganesh055 - 04-02-2024

Absolutely, the number of attempts on USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK can have implications for your residency application. While it's not the sole factor considered, multiple attempts may raise questions about your ability to pass standardized exams, which are essential for medical practice. It's crucial to address any multiple attempts thoughtfully in your application and during interviews, highlighting any personal growth, remediation efforts, and improvements made since previous attempts. Ultimately, while multiple attempts may slightly diminish competitiveness, they do not necessarily preclude matching into a residency program. It's essential to focus on demonstrating resilience, dedication, and a commitment to improvement throughout your medical education journey.
