Is there a limit on the number of re-takes for USMLE Steps?
A candidate who has attempted same USMLE step four or more times, including incomplete attempts, and could not pass, will be considered ineligible to apply for any USMLE step in the USMLE exam sequence. All attempts made by a candidate, no matter when it is made, will be counted toward overall limit for the exam. The time frame in which you pass these USMLE steps, and the USMLE score you achieved, means a lot while matching a residency in USA.
