Retaking An Exam: COMLEX-USA

Retaking An Examination

Candidates may not retake any level of COMLEX-USA to improve their score or for any purpose other than to pass a previously failed examination. Candidates who have failed an examination may retake the examination up to four times in any 12-month period.

Four-Attempt Limit

Effective July 1, 2022, candidates taking COMLEX-USA examinations are limited to a total of four (4) attempts for each examination (COMLEX-USA Level 1, Level 2-CE, and Level 3), including but not limited to all attempts prior to July 1, 2022. Please see the Bulletin of Information for more information.

The only consideration for an exception to this policy, allowing for one additional attempt beyond the four-attempt limit, is at the explicit request of a medical licensing agency.

For the NBOME to waive the limitation of a maximum of four attempts for any COMLEX-USA examination, candidates are required to obtain a written petition for waiver from a medical licensing agency.
