    I thought it was a decent exam. Wish I had put more time in drugs though. UWorld questions helped.

    I was told that 73 ppl failed it! I hope that is just a bad rumor like eveything else!

    Well supposedly, the ppl that failed will get another chance to redeem themselves on another shelf or final! I do not know all of the specific details yet though.

    I heard about that.

    Currently the numbers say, 50% of Micro failed, 50% of Physio failed, 25 students for Path 1, 25 for ICM and 4 for Pharm.

    I must say it is pretty damn unfair to get a "second chance" on this shelf stuff. I've taken my exams and never had the opportunity to go in there and get a second chance if I did fail it. Its one exam, its one day, do or die, half the class fails! Now they get to retake it! If 10 students failed, those students would be placed on probation! Bull.

    Either dont count the shelf exam, or count it, retaking doesnt make any sense, One could have gone into the micro technically on game day and christmas treed it and get a second stab, I wonder if USMLE STEP 1 would offer a second chance without the first being a mark?

    Just a rant, Im a current student, and did what I could to pass the shelfs on game day and believe I did, no second chances! Repeat the class and learn the material!!!!!!!!

    def. should've known drugs better.
    did hear profs didn't curve it at all this time and thus that's why the 2nd chance is given...still, better to rock it first time around!
