Regarding USMLE retesting

Postby Guest » 24 Jun 2005, 06:40

Does a single repeat on any of the USMLE steps automatically disqualify you from TN Liscensure, and for how long... indefinately?

What if your scores are good-
221Step I
212step II 2nd attempt, (172 on first)
StepIII Pending

By the NBME own admission, your score if repeated exams were taken will vary +/- 5 points in most never more than 10-15 points for all..I increased 40 points, and feel this should be considered...


Thanks
