Help Failed the CK, do I still have a chance!

Hi to all,

and I failed the CK exam with 74(184). I have to say I had too much problems with my family and I also had surgery and I could not postpone my exam, can any body guide me do I have any chance to retake my exam and if I get good score in exam will it be a bad thing in my CV that I failed in CK?

I am so depressed and confused.

Default Step to take after failing

Failed attempts in the USMLE exam is a very bad point in your CV and this will make your chances of getting into residency really difficult.

To ameliorate the matter try the following:
-Get very high score in your second attempt.
-Do not fail other steps.
-Get USCE and US LoRs.
