I think it will reported on your MSPE...and i dont feel it will affect on getting on interview , but interview they may ask..so you should prepared your statement smartly..

thnx halo2013....I will of course.....
dunno man....i'm getting stressed out.....you know...after this much of effort + the investment already.....its scary...lets hope it doesn't affect my chances of getting iv.....
actually i think it is a good thing if they ask this in the iv.....then i can explain...i flunked the practical part of medicine only(the last day of the exam) and that was partly becoz i had a terrible fever that started the day before the exam...my voice was all choked and hoarse....i think i irritated the examiners with my voice more than anything else....

newys...another question.....should i mention this shortcoming in my personal statement ???that way it will surely be raised in the iv....or should i wait for them to raise the topic i the iv itself????

anyone else had this same problem???really would like to hear from them...:sorry:

So did u actually make it? I'm a final year MBBS student from India n I actually failed anatomy n physiology the first time around. I had migrated from abroad n had a lot of health issues, but I passed on my second chance and there after my scores picked up pretty well but I'm still really worried about my first year marks ruining my chances of getting a residency spot. Is there any advice you could offer?
