Unhappy form 187 only after completion of IWA

Hi I am a medical student.
I just finish my ECFMG application and I am sure I paid successfully cause I got the payment confirmation number.
But after my application, I just got form 187.
Can anyone tell me did I do anything wrong in the application steps?
how can I fix this problems and get form 186?
Some threads before said I need to answer the 15 Qs.
But where is the 15 Qs?

You will get the option to print form 186/183 after you apply for step 1 and pay the fees. If your medical school participates in EMSWP or if you're a graduate then IWA will give you the option to print form 186, form 183 is only for students who's medical school do not participate in EMSWP.

Now you have to make sure that you send in all the documents to ECFMG and have your credentials verified within 4 months after your online application or you'll have to complete the online application and pay the $65 fees again

Did you choose your eligibility period?
