Default GUys need help and advice....Should I reapply

My Extended eligibility period ends on 31st March....
NBme 7 predicts my score at 194
Due to a series of unfortunate events and personal health problems in past 4 months couldnt start prep early....I started prep in late Jan this year( before this i had completed kaplan physio micro immuno bchem (videos only)). Since Jan i have done Pathoma once (going throug it second time rt now)and FA first pass only.Also m doing Uworld(random timed) with % ranging between 45 and early 60s.
Any advice regarding what I should do now??? Should I reapply ?? if yes then what procedure to follow??
I am an IMG ,so beating the mean score is very important for me.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thnx

You have to reapply again as far as i know and the procedure is same.
Be confident everything will go fine. Don't worry

my advice? Don't take the exam now.reapply and pay the money again. I know its a steep price but your future is well worth it. Best of luck.

you will be able to re-apply 14 days after your current period ends.

You will only need to submit the online application and pay the exam fees.

Make sure to be 100% ready to chose the right 3 month interval for you to write the step. this cannot be changed.

good luck

Man reapply, its a 800 dollars, imagine you bought clothes with that and lost them on your way home.. It will pay off from your first salary, but if this happens again, I will personally come and slap you!!!

Hey Varun,

Since you are beginning a new application, you don't need to pay the prometric fees. this would only apply if you decided to write the step within your eligibility period (or extended) and change the date.

You only need to pay the application fees (the exam fees for step 1 examination)

hope that answers your question

I called them to ask when i could not attempt my exam. So i checked it out.

If you have doubts, always call prometric or ecfmg.

good luck
