Listening Failed the CK and decided to switch back to Step 1

Hello every one

I would like to involve in a discussion about my step 2 ck score

I was prepared for about 6 month as my first exam (I did not take step 1 in the beginning), unfortunately I did not pass the exam
I study Kaplan materials & I did UW my score is at 65-70% & I still have 900
questions to finish it, then I took NBME

So I'm decide to take the next step is to study for step1 ???

I need your support

Thank you

Hi

Why don't you push a bit further and re-do 2CK?

How much time you have?

Oh I see. You feel that you will have greater chance to do well in 2CK if you do step-1 first, don't you? In that case it is not a bad idea at all.

Since you already started working on the CK again, I believe finishing the job is the way to go.
If you go back and read for Step 1 at this time, you might waste your time because then when you return to the CK prep you'll see that you forgot many things.
So in my opinion I think you should keep consistency.

You are not the first student to fail a step, have a look here

did you take an NBME online form? And if yes, what grade did you take?
I agree that you should finish the job with step 2 and then do step 1
