Default Is it possible to retake UMSLE steps again?

Dear All,

I have a question, is it possible to retake USMLE steps again, especially if you got low scores? and after being ecfmg certified how long does it take to take USMLE steps again?, or if you failed? after 5 years of application, does application for UMSLE exams expire? if yes you start a new application to take UMSLE again, does your previous low scores in previous application affect your status, or only the new application matters?
I would appreciate your response

Many thanks

Default retake steps

Hi, Dear Friend, How is everything going. Hopefully getting well.
I am considering retaking my steps also. I got 230+ in step1 and CK, but failed cs twice. I hope to retake all those steps. And I am not sure whether I can retake it. When I registrate in ECFMG, should my previous ID information be presented? Thanks.
