Question Can we hide medical college failures!

how about getting supplementary exam or detension from one prof(exam).....

for example in pakistan MBBS is 5 year degree but i got it in 7 years and every year i got supplementary exam in each prof..
here is post by u and u listed following points

7- ECFMG to Medical School Forms
These forms you do not have access to it and you are not allowed to send them to your school, The ECFMG will send them.
They will send one copy of your 345 to tell the school that you allowed them to ask about you.
They will also send your Diploma (that you initially sent to them see step 4 above) and they'll ask the school to authenticate it.
They will also send a form called (Verification of Medical Education) the questions in that form are these;
what was the requirements before you entered the school
how many weeks of medical education you completed
what degree was awarded (if you are a graduate)
asking to verifying the attached diploma
dean or other authorized registration officer's signature, date, and name
any interruptions or extensions in your medical education
any disciplinary probation you had or currently have
any professional misconduct that you have during your school years
any negative reports about you in the school
any limitations or special requirements by you

so if i completed my exam in 7 years instead of standard 5 years is it to be noted and asked by ECFMG ??

IS THERE ANY WAY TO HIDE OR MITIGATE IT??

If you and your college are willing to say the truth then you should not hide this information.
If you or your college are willing to change facts then yes of course you can hide that information.

The ECFMG wants the truth and nothing but the truth.

I urge you to tell the truth. I know some IMGs who have been discovered to have lied in their application and got their license revoked after years of practice in USA.

Default Failing

Does failing in a semester in MBBS affect your chances of getting selected in USMLE?

i have heard that ur medical college results have nothing to do with usmle steps or residency programs and residency only depends on your step exam scores and experiences ... i hope so m not wrong ...
