I don't have an answer to your question, the only one I have heard about is that Vandy's intern class' average is 245 for Step I. On a related note, I recently took Step 2 Clinical Skills. Some of the students there were saying that 9-10% of the people were failing. Like Mississippi State students said that 4-5 out of 50 have failed. Has anyone heard any other numbers? Those are awfully high fail rates for a test that costs $1000. 235/waiting

I heard of a few people at my school are failing too. I think it's a crooked system. Is it really necessary to charge is that much to see if we can speak english and wash our hands?

I believe Step 2 CS is curved so a certain percentage of students HAVE to fail. And these people will become the justification for the continuation of this nonsense. Reminds me of circular logic.

Several people at my school have failed also and not necessarily the people I would have expected.

If you pass, you can get a Peds spot.
