Dear All,

I am in need of some serious help here. I am a dentist from India. Cleared Part 1 first attempt. Failed Part 2 twice (one with 72, one with 74). I am feeling really demotivated but do not want to give up. Does anyone know anyone who is the same situation and have got accepted after passing NBDE part 2 in 3rd attempt? Any help will be really useful.

Sorry to hear that. These will look really bad in your application. Top schools now keep boasting about their 100% NBDE pass rate of their regular students so they will not like the fact that you failed, even once.

Some schools allow you to send copy of NBDE result by your own for the initial step. You might considered sending only part 1 result first.

Once you got acceptance, you can then request NBDE to send the whole results to school.

Alternatively, you can check choose other countries instead of the US.

What were your raw scores on the exams that you failed?

I don't understand why you would post your picture on this forum. Weird

Is it required to indicate Fail of NBDE 2 in the application if I am applying with the Part 1 result?

Yes I get that
But is it absolutely necessary to indicate the result?
At the end of the application you will be asked to sign it and promise , that all the information you put in it is true. If you omit the results and later school will uncover it, they might decide not to accept you. At the same time taking foreign board exam, which is very difficult a few times is not that shameful and has no negative consequences unless you apply to masters later
Don't risk it

Hi,
Did you mention you failed attempts in the application? Did it negatively impact your application?
