Update #2
Should we take the WHOLE exam again, if we have passed all the three COMPONENTS, SUBcomponents or whatever PARTS?

The Medical Board of California allows the licensing exam to be taken in parts and recognizes the pass results in each part of the final licensing exam.

 Federal and state laws prohibit the use of misleading descriptions.  NBME and ECFMG use the words "components" and "subcomponents" to describe the three parts of STEP 2 CS, which are misleading.

Update #1
The president of  NBME, Dr. Donald Melnick, as well as other NBME- and ECFMG- physicians have  never taken and passed this exam, and will never take it to protect the health of the public and the health of their own patients.

Petition text
NBME and ECFMG use the words 'subcomponent' and 'component'  as a description of the three parts of the Step 2 CS. This is done for the purpose of making people who have passed all the parts of the exam in two administrations, to take the exam again and again,  for a third time, and be tested in the same parts that the examinee has already passed.  What is the purpose of testing something already passed? MONEY!

NBME and ECFMG claim that USMLE has three Steps or  Components- Step 1, Step 2, Step 3.  Step 2 has two components (CS and CK). Then CS-exam should also have parts called components.  These parts are subcomponents in relation to STEP 2, and subsubcomponents in relation to USMLE.
