Default Failed a subject in second year MBBS

Hi guys... I really need an advice from you.
I have just completed my MBBS from an Indian University and I am now preparing the USMLE step 1 exam.
But I am really worried about something.
In my second year MBBS I failed in Microbiology. Do you guys think that this will affect my chances of getting a residency in the US even if I get very good scores in the USMLE exams??
And do you know anybody who has failed in their MBBS and yet got a residency in the United States??
Please guys... answers me... I am really worried.

No, As far as I know, it won't affect your residency chances in sha Allah.. what matters to them is usmle scores they wont look at your undergrad. (y)

Yes, it will. A failure at any point stands out like a sore thumb. This doesn't mean the end of the road though. You'll just have to score that much better on your USMLE steps.

Also try getting a decent score in your third and fourth years of MBBS. I am sure some of the PDs will appreciate a candidate who learns from their failures and goes on to do better.

It will not affect your residency. Just don't fail any more and do well on your steps.
