Exam-Results Failing Step 3 and Residency Application!

hello,

I got my step 3 results today and unfortunately I failed! Now , I have 2 questions:

1. At the time of application, if i do not mention that I have taken step 3, will programs be able to know that i flunked?

2. What will this effect my residency application?

Looking forward to get answers to my questions.

thank you.

You can't hide the failed attempt because you have to say YES in ERAS to show your Step 1 and CK results and that would automatically show your Step 3 attempt.

How bad it is?
I think it is going to affect your residency match application specially if you have low scores in Step 1 and CK, but if you have good scores there, then they might say Oh that's just a bummer

Thanks Sabio for the reply. I have 99 in step 1 and 92 in step 2.

1. Will the failed attempt in step 3 have much effect in interview calls?

2. Do u suggest me to retake my step 3 and get results before I start my interviews?

Looking forward to hear from you.

thank you in advance.

I think your scores are great. Don't delay applying. Just study agan and shoot for passing before match. If you are an IMG and you need visa, its better if you pass.

If not, dont worry.

Regardless, APPLY ON SEPTEMBER 1st.
