Unhappy Scared about CK failure

I am really scary and disappointed, I need your opnion please

I pass CS with 1st attempt but failed step 2 ck a few month ago.

Now I am preparing very well to take it again and hope with high score, and at the same time I am doing Neurology research which will be for a year in university hospital in USA since i want Neurology residency.

I am really scary about ck attempt, and want to know if I still have chance to match next year when i finish my ck2-1

please let me know your opinion, I really need them

I am IMG

No one wants to give you bad news but with a failure (red flag) your chances of a Neuro Residency as a IMG non US citizen will be impossible

call GOD and ask him that question He is the only one that can give you an honest forecast but from my experience as a mere mortal, it will be extremely difficult to match in Neurology

@dani88: you are a clown is this your defense mechanism? You are the one that posted of how scared you are, that we should tell your chances & you tyrn around and batch anyone that tries to be realistic with you. You can take whatever you believe in like your friends that failed x10 but go 20IV & offered 10 prematch positions...hahaha....but pls quit deceiving yourself.
IMO, its never the end of the road and you can even match in dematology if you just wish for it!

What is your Step 1 score? Although that's more important than Step 2CK, your failure will unfortunately show up as a big red flag to PDs.

You may want to consider whether spending a year of research in the US just to help secure a neurology residency will be time well spent, as your application may not even be considered.

Sorry mate. Best of luck.

I am only being realistic guys on this forum with 250 and 260 scores are having a hard time matching into IM never mind a high end specialty like Neuro. Even if you passed all your steps on the first try you would still have a slim chance matching Neuro. For IMG's matching is getting harder each passing YR.
