United States USMLE - Step 1
♦ You cannot take more than six attempts to pass each Step without demonstration of acceptable additional educational experience.
The following rules must be kept in mind.
♦ You cannot take Step 1 more than three times within a 12-month period.
♦ For Step 1 you may retake the failed Step no earlier than the first day of the month after 60 days have elapsed since your previous test date.
