Correct Answer regarding unattemted step1 attempts

Hi everyone,

I am IMG from India. can anyone tell me about the impact of unattempted step1 exam on my future for residency? I extended my eligibility period and now planning to reapply for step 1( not writing the exam in extended period also). is there any problem for that? will unattempted attempt be counted in no.of attempts? In order to apply for 2016 residency matching when should i complete step 1, 2ck and cs? Do step 3 is required for match? plese do reply.

thanks in advance.

regards
drs4s

Any unattempted steps wont be counted as a failure. You will lose the fees. Thats about it. As for 2016 match...you need to have your step 1 and step 2 ck....and since you are an img...preferably step 2 cs also by september. Good luck.

The only time a test is "Counted" is when we enter the CIN number in the computer to begin the exam. That CIN number is like opening an envelope and once it is opened, the score is reported to residency directors, even if you leave the exam center at the moment. Anything before that do not show up anywhere in your file.
