You did pretty good in your Step 1, and according to various Internet articles and the First Aid books, Step 1 is more important than Step 2. So no: you shouldn't quit. Do you have or can you get US clinical experience? Take the test again. Pass with flying colors. Build your curriculum vitae. Don't lose hope!

you should never give up.

if going to america for your residency is your ultimate dream then go for it. ure not the only one that failed. there are many others. some ppl take the exam more than twice. you are half way to getting a 240 score. try again.

and yes, get lots of USCE. there are so many available, ask around, go to US today n start your research or USCE today.

good luck!

yes u definitely can. there are many others doing it, so can u. and u dont have to start back at square one. go through UW online again n read the explanations etc. go thru MTB2 in ur spare time. u will do good.

yes i think kaplan alone + UW for u is enough. and definitely go over ur weaker subjects thoroughly. if it was int.med then go over it like it is ur only hope.

i know someone who hasnt taken his ck but has done cs n is hoping to match in 2013. He started his research with mayo last year July if im not mistaken.

speak to donofitaly. get some insight into what your next step should be. but im leaving you with this note. its not just a quote you read everyday. take it very seriously:
