Unhappy ck failed today!!!!

Hey everyone! I just recieved my CK result today and I failed.
Does anyone know if I can still apply for a prelim or transitional year with just Step 1 and Cs?
My plan is to take the CK again by January.

Thanks

I'm sorry to hear about that Lorefront. I am applying with only step 1 & ck.. Cs result pending.. So i know I will be at a disadvantage.. I'd lose money which could be better allocated for match application next year with complete scores, + possibly USCE & US LORs.

However, i think applying with only step 1, CS score + 1 fail, pending repeat CK may not be a good idea. Thats just my opinion..

I should be studying but I wanted to do something good today. I hope this helps.

Unfortunately, this year may be difficult for you. If you plan on applying regardless of your challenges, you will need to find very lenient programs who do not require the ECFMG Certification at the time of application.

That said, you must have all of your test scores in hand to qualify for the Match. If you do not have your scores completed by February 24, 2016, you will be disqualified from participating in the Match.

Please consider this when scheduling your next CK.
