Question One:
Does it matter if I take my step 1 after 2 yrs of graduation?

Question Two:
I failed once in anatomy and once in pathology during my med school. Is this going to affect me in getting a match for the residency even if i get 240+ in step 1?

thanks..

Answer One:
No it does not matter. There are people taking Step 1 many years after graduation. I know friends who have taken the exam 20 years after the exam!

Answer Two:
Your failure during the medical school will only show up in MSPE and this is not always needed as it can be replaced by Dean's letter.
