Default I need sincere advice

Hello everybody,

I was planing to apply for the match this september, but unfortunately, I failed the CS exam.

Now i want to retake it but this means that I am gonna apply without being ECFMG certified. Should i go for it? I cannot imagine waiting a whole year to apply again. Please tell me your thought on this.

P.S money is not an issue for me.

I would wait till next year. I just wont risk being a repeat applicant as long as I'm less than 5 years post graduation, and in the meantime it will give me time to build a stronger application.
