You are allowed to re-take part 1 even after you are done with part 2.

Hi Cooldent,

There is one problem here, if you retake part 1 after your part 2 your first part 1 scores ie, 85% will appear on your score card.

and whats the problem with that?i mean even if the ist part1 exam score appears on his report which i doubt it ,then it will be an indication that he is a persistant person who dident surrendor and who has tried again to acheive a better score with success.

Actually it does matter. This girl was saying how at UPenn they questioned her about retaking her part 1, 'cause her first score was 84. They could see it in her first board certificate. I guess schools want only really smart people, that score a 90+ at the first try. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
