Smile Hi I am NS

Hi guys Iam NS , 2010 graduate from india

I have been thinking about applying for Steps from the time i graduated . But the past three years were messed up for me...hence i didnt work nor write the steps....
I am planning to do Steps now but i am worried. i wasted three years. Will it affect my matching chances. i have been out of touch with meds. How long will it take to do step 1 if my basics are good enough ? in past three years ..all my friends have moved on ...i really need your help

Thanks
NS

Hi NS, I am in a similar situation.

My gap is 1 year instead of three but rest is exactly the same.

Where in India are you from?

Check out my post : Need guidance to START preparation.

I think we can help each other!
