Like rulz said, just focus on your ck. You will make it. Many with lower scores make it. Work on your other cards. This isn't even a bad score.

Best of luck to you!

From what I know FM in US you can go into IM (have a friend that is doing that). In India I cannot say (sorry). Given your score I would take the time to look for research to boost up your application (apply for both 2013 and research and see what happens). But the fact you are pushing forward is great. Rock step 2 and you'll be IM before you know it (and good LOR). As for the electives, if you are truly serious about FM then do electives in it (would be weird if a some one that wants be a surgeon did no surgery electives).

hey examtaker, congrats on passing step 1, u have a good chance to do IM. dont worry about it, i would still suggest u to keep going with ur 1st choice residency . but in the end its ur decision and ur call. if i were you i would have followed my dreams , i would have listened to my heart.
anyways, can u please tell me what were the mistakes that u think u made?
what do u think went wrong, how was the exam?
