Question ERAS question : Was your medical education/training extended or interrupted


Our medical school education is usually 4.5 yrs + 1 yr internship. Towards the end of 4.5 yrs, I could not pass one exam, and had to wait another 6 months for the exam to happen again. So I ended up spending 5+1 yr at med school.

So should my answer to the above question be yes ?


Is the above question targetted towards people whose education was extended due to circumstances such as disciplinary action, health issues, etc.

Appreciate any feedback.
