Unhappy Failing First Year MBBS India and USMLE eligibility

Does getting a back in first year of M.B.B.S (from India) more than once make you ineligible to appear for the USMLE?? if so, is there any way to get around it??

That's not true.

When you get your MBBS (regardless how you got it), you will be eligible to be ECFMG certified.

There's a nice discussion related to this issue here's the link

There's no problem with that. You can apply to Step 1 while you are in third year or even right after the second year.
Again it deos not matter if you previously failed or extended the first year.
