Most High ranked programs & University hospitals require that the applicant passed step 1 & step 2 from the first time, i.e with no attempts.
Do they mean CK & CS in step 2 ? or just CK ?

I have another strange question,
If someone failed a material at his school like physiology, then repeated it & passed...This will appear on Transcript that he failed physiology & repeated it....Does this affect Matching?

--Yes, they mean Step 2 CS also, in fact, they particularly look at Step 2 CS because they know that IMGs are good in theory but usually weak in language and communications :toosad:

--Yes, it might affect your profile but not to a great extent. Most PDs do not meticulously read through an IMGs transcript as they are not sure about it and it's not standard for them, they rely more on your USMLE scores.
