Steps attempt limt question

12/19/2011 11:28:33 AM
Had a question in regards to the attempt limit policy that goes into effect starting Jan. 1,2012 (or 2013 if you've already attempted a Step prior).

Let's say that I passed Step 1 several years back and it took me two attempts to pass it. Since I "passed" it already and my score after 7 years would no longer valid, obviously, I would need to retake it again. Does the attempt limit reset to 0 or are the 2 attempt limits already counted even though I passed the exam previously?

I'm in the process of trying to complete Step 2 CK and CS before the 7 year mark elapses. A lot of things happened which have prevented me from being about to properly prep for Step 2 CK, and I was able to begin prep earlier this year, though now I know I'm running against the clock to clear these two exams before my Step 1 becomes invalid near the end of next year.

I guess if you let those 7 years pass it should reset as your first attempt. My advice is to call ECFMG and try to clarify this if u r an IMG. Cause it s not impossible but it s just a risk trying to have ck and cs done next yr I means finacially. Also even tougher start from zero. Base on how you realy feel you ll deciede.
