    5th semester Kaplan Diagnostic Failures

    Advertisements



    Hey guys,

    We were just informed that 8 students failed the Kaplan Diagnostic test in 5th semester. Are they really forcing students to stay on the island for 4 more months to take the same test again or are they making alternative plans so the students can actually go home and retake the test (and study for step 1) there.

    Please shed some light and best of luck with everything


    Cheers

    If you don't know the answer to the original question, this thread does not apply to you. If you need info regarding other specific questions, contact the school or look for other threads.

    hi Freerider,
    my cousin is in med 5, and he told me that gardner is making all the students who didn't pass the Kaplan diagnostic re-take it in 6 weeks. those students must pass before they will be allowed to take the step one. as far as i know, the students who failed can stay at home and study for the post-kap, but they have to come back to Nevis to re-take the test. however, i'm sure the people at gardner can arrage for students to re-take the kaplan test in gardner, but i'm not 100% sure. hope this helps

    I'm going to call ** on this. The school can't 'stop' you from writing Step 1; the only thing they can do is not stamp the paperwork (but this should already be done by the time u take the Kaplan diagnostic).

    And as far as taking the Kaplan diagnostic, you can take it at any Kaplan center in the world; so there's no way they're getting students to fly back to Nevis for a stupid exam.

    I'm still hoping someone can answer my original question; what is considered a passing grade on the Kaplan diagnostic?
