    got 183 and 184 is pass

    Advertisements



    Dear Colleages
    Recently I took USMLE step 3 and unfortunately recieved 183 ( 184 is the passing score).Actually during the course of my exam computer shut down 5 miniutes ahead of time because of that I couldn't finish all of the questions at least 10 MCQs which lead to this disaster.

    Can some one suggest me what to do.

    I really appreciate your reply

    Thanks

    This, unfortunately, is not an uncommon thing. I have heard numerous times about computer shut-downs during testing. One of my colleagues had this happen to him. Fisrt, you must have reported this to the Prometric staff so they would have written up an incident report to be sent to FSMB. Next, you should contact the FSMB regarding this incident so it is on the record. The FSMB will look to confirm the incident with Prometric & then either give you the option to accept the pending results or retake the exam at no cost. Since the scores were already released, I would imagine that you would be allowed to retake the exam at no cost to you. You may be entitled to other expenses that were out-of-pocket due to this incident. Good luck, & make sure you contact FSMB ASAP.
