Poor preparation is the most common reason students fail USMLE Step 1. Often students will purchase stacks of review books and attempt to memorize questions, outlines and facts. It is impossible to memorize what you need to know to earn a pass on licensure exams. Licensure exams require a student to have a clear understanding of basic and clinical science, and its application to patient care.
Mastering the coursework is the only sure means of ensuring students to do well on exams. Students that fail USMLE Step 1 are often those that didn't put adequate importance on their coursework. They believed they could cram to have what they need for course exams, and memorize what they need to know for the licensure exam from board review books. This flawed process is the most common reason students fail USMLE Step 1.
Coursework is detailed and mastering the details is the only sure means of doing well on licensure exams. It’s earning a complete knowledge of the details that provides students with an understanding of the basic concepts needed in their eventual practice of medicine. Many students complain about the rigors of their curriculum and seek short cuts. There are none, but unfortunately this fact only becomes clear once students fail USMLE Step 1.
Besides poor preparation for exams, the other primary reason students fail USMLE Step 1 is poor study habits.
Poor Study Habits
Poor study habits are another cause of students failing their USMLE Step 1. Not to be confused with poor preparation, poor study habits precede preparation. A student may fail due to poor preparation regardless of whether study habits were good or bad. Poor study habits usually include trying to succeed at curriculum and study multitasking, engaging in social studying, or allowing distracting environments to sabotage efforts to focus on memorizing vital information. To benefit from time spent studying it has to be, specifically, time spent studying. That means alone and within an environment conducive with being able to focus on study material and retaining the information being reviewed.
The 10,000-hour rule made infamous by Malcolm Gladwell is impractical, even if it worked. No one can lock themselves away for over 600 days to study 16 hours out of every 24 on a single test as Gladwell suggests is necessary. Besides, the number of hours a student can study only gets them so far. To succeed with a limited time frame and numerous extracurricular activities, students need to focus, prioritize, and use what time is available to study wisely.
