Form Do I need Form 327A verification before getting scheduling permit?

I originally submitted my Step 1 application in Nov, 2010. The ECFMG requested credential from my medical school oversea in Jan, 2011 and has received the documents in early May, now they haven't finished the verification yet and I am anxiously waiting for a permit to take exam. When I contacted them asking if they need to further contact my medical school to finalize the verification, they say I can pay for courier service for them to send the Form 327A to my medical school. Must I have this Form 327A verified before I can take step 1? Thanks.

Default Usually the permit is sent before credential verification

If you have a valid "certificate of identification" form 186 valid, then you shouldn't be needing to wait for form 327A verification.

See this poll
Medical education credentials verification and scheduling permit

Go to your OASIS account and see if your certificate of identification form is valid.

If it is valid, then ask them on the phone "Will I get my permit before credentials verification", then when they answer you please go and post in the poll I referred to above.
