Listening Should i change the test center for step 2cs?

I have posted this before , would like more input and expert opinion on changing the test center for step 2 cs if its not working out.
Took it twice so far at Chicago center, failed both times, shocked and cannot believe, I failed the ICE and reviewed all my Patient notes again and again, cannot seem to find what the problem is. Is it worth either ordering a recheck or changing the center? I will appreciate responses from all readers plzzz!!

Sorry to hear you passed the hurdle that CS yet.
Like the poster above, I don't think it is worth changing the test center. It's such a standardized test and the only thing that really varies is the SP accent. I've seen all sorts of posts stating that one center is IMG friendly vs non-IMG friendly. I think that's all nonsense to be honest.

If you failed the ICE component twice, then you need to fundamentally change that aspect of review for the next time.
