There is a seven-year rule than I have discussed in the International Medical Graduate's Best Hope sold on amazon.
t basically says if that from the time you take the first exam you should pass all exams within 7 years.
Technically exams expire if you don't enter residency after a certain time. In reality t, this is only for license purposes because the programs can hire you if they feel you are qualified and usually they arrange so you obtain a temporary license. There are procedural waiver that they use. In the book I mention the states that don't aply the seven-year rule. I discussed that even for those who do apply the rule, the programs usually obtain you a license to practice with no trouble. Your bigger problem is that it has been 4 years since you passed the last exam and the programs will see that piece of information and will wonder why you have not gotten in and may not give you your chance because they worry that something may be wrong with you.
Read the book and you will have a clear view on your strengths and your weaknesses entering into the upcoming match.
