Hi!
The score you have to get depends on the residency you wanna get. A noncompetitive residency like family medicine would require a lower step 1 score, than lets say for example orthopaedics, to get into. And of course you ve got to get a passing score in order to be able to apply!
I can not understand the other question.. (How many years is your school? What do you mean to have the 7th year in the us? As a student? As a resident? What do tou mean when will they pay you?)

I heard that they pay you a salary when you are making residency so I was asking about it ( if so, how much will they give me and will it be enough for me and my wife )
and here in Jordan the medicine school is 6 years ( 3 basic and 3 clinical ) and the 7th year is to work in a hospital here and they call it Internship year and it is one year and I was asking if I can make it in USA

Yes you will get paid as a resident. The salaries are rising through years of residency. The salaries residents get are almost the same regardless the residency..

I am not familiar with the system you are describing but I auppose that if you get your degree in six first years you could apply for residency in the us. Of course to do this you ve got to be eligible (step1, step 2 ck & cs, your degree are the minimum requirements to be eleigible.. there are also other things you ve got to do in order to have chances to get into residency)

When I finish my basic years ( the first three years ) I will do my step 1 USMLE exam
and then I will try to get the residency through the three clinical years

You need to have:
- completed medical school;
- passed the USMLE Step 1, 2/CK/CS

And then you can apply for an ECFMG certification. After which, you will be able to apply for residency programs. It is more complicated than that though- you need to also have US clinical exposure, research, etc.

I suggest doing your homework on your own; sorry, not to sound crude or anything, but you need to understand the system for yourself so you can strategically plan everything. It is an intricate process that needs methodical planning.

Check out the NRMP, ECFMG websites.

Good luck!
