how good is this score for an img for H1B b? please answer forum seniors.


I think you only have to pass to get the visa.


score doesnot matter in hi b visa


then is it bad for fellowships like hem onc ? can I back it with some research ?


I don't think 85 is bad for step 3. shaking head

I know a lot of people with 95+ on the other steps that got mid-80s in step 3. nod

Of course, if you have means to make your application stronger, go for it!


Why is this that a lot of people with high scores on step 1 ad 2 score much lower on step 3? Is it that they do not care about the score so much any more? Is it that because step 3 CCS are so different from just answering MCQs? I also find it very common that some of the people I know had 99 on step 1, than something in the 90s for step 2 and than almost flunked step 3. One of them had his relatives visiting from India, while studying for step 3, but the rest of them - I have no real explanation, however it is definitely a trend.smiling face


smiling face thanks arlete.


scores in step3 doesnt help for fellowship
its your performance during residency and lors frm residency
