Default Failed in a subject in MBBS

Hi... I recently got my MBBS degree from India and I am now preparing for the USMLE step 1... However, there is something that is bothering me... in my second year MBBS, I failed in microbiology... I was wondering if this would be a problem to get a residency even if I score very good marks, say 220+, in the step 1? thanx

An attempt on your medical school transcript certainly does not look good and some PDs will consider that as a red flag. That is out of your control now I guess but you can prove your knowledge by excellent scores on the steps. And 220+ scores are no longer considered very good, to have a decent chance to need score well above 235, with good bit of usce, US lors and well rounded cv with personal statement. Good luck!
