Aim USMLE Step 1

Need a lot of help regarding my doubts
Hi Everyone
I am a 2nd year MBBS student studying in Hyderabad, India. I strongly aspire to write USMLE and get a good residency, considering I have relatives who are permanents citizens of the US.
However I have a lot of unanswered queries in my mind.
Which one is easy and helpful ?..... Returning to India after Residency (or) Continuing in the US?
What are the options available to me after Residency, If I want to continue in the US ?
What is the better time to take the test in order to score higher ?
What are the most easily acquirable residencies ?
What are the odds on getting a residency in Surgery?
When and Where to take coaching for Step 1?
If we dont get a score good enough, how long before I take a second attempt of Step 1?

Kindly answer my questions in patience please.
Thank you

most of your questions have already been answered in great detail in multiple threads here in rxpg. you should take the time to read them before you ask any questions. don't expect others to spoon feed you without first doing the basic research.
anyways, i am answering your questions this one time. read my thread "usmle for beginners" . i have anticipated and answered almost all questions there. read it, and if you still have any specific questions i'll be glad to help .
ans
1. both conditions are helpful. you can come back and work in corporate hospitals in india but will find it difficult to compete with those already established in india.
2. you can pursue a fellowship after residency (equivalent to superspecialty in india such as DM/Mch ) or directly join as an attending physician.
3. used to be that june july were avoided because most americans take their tests during those months, but now the scoring system algorithm has been changed so really doesn't matter. anytime of the year is fine.
4. some specialties are considered IMG friendly specialties. IM, FM, Peds, Psychiatry are the most IMG friendly.
5. all surgical residencies are much harder to get compared to above.
6. many coaching centers throughout india, but big waste of time. best resources are kaplan and pathoma. if you have enough money, then subscribe for online kaplan classes.
7. a step score remains valid for seven years. after that you can retake the test. in reality no one does that. a score one begotten is usually permanent under realistic conditions.
