This time when you prepare target high marks and take NBMEs before you try again! Failing ain't a dead sentence, but you will have to prove your worth next time!

Hi sorry to hear. But I suggest you to analyse what actually went wrong in your prep. Is it because of your exam nervousness,anxiety etc.. Or how were your nbmes? I think if you have confidence u can fight this tough situation and get out of this in not less than 5-6 months.and only you can assess ur self than any one. So just make right decision ..I think if ur nbmes were good u should proceed studying again. Let us know how u studied and what went wrong so that u maybe helping someone making aware of how tough exam is or how hard we have to prepare. Thanks and good luck.

Well it was all my lack of study , not taking nbmes before time.
i should have studied more , should have taken self assessment exams before time so could have improved ..
whats shattering me is my weak application ..
im planning to re-take in 3 months but im already late in taking steps ..
i wanted some kind of guidance, suggestions , anyones experience to motivate myself for re-taking it ..
