    Our records indicate that you are already registered for this Step or Step Component. You may not apply for a Step or Step Component if you are already registered for that Step or Step Component. If you fail or do not complete a Step or Step Component, you may submit another application for this exam, but certain time limits apply when retaking a Step or Step Component. For complete information, refer to Reexamination and Reapplication in the ECFMG Information Booklet and Retakes in the USMLE Bulletin of Information.

    You can't reapply until you have been officially told if you passed or failed. Which makes sense because there are a *lot* of people who thought they failed, but ended up passing.

    If you do fail, you can retake the exam at least 60 days after your previous attempt. You can register for it as soon as you know that you did not pass, but you can't schedule it until 60 days after your last attempt.

    I'd suggest looking through the Bulletin of Information which is on the NBME and USMLE websites--it has all sorts of useful information in it about registrations and eligibilities.

    Good luck!
