Help application for exam got rejected

hi all:

i receieved a letter as following:
NOTICE OF REJECTED APPLICATION
USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number: ########
July 19, 2011
Dear Doctor:
The Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) is unable to process your
recent application for the USMLE Step 1 (Application Identification Code ##########, on-line
part submitted June 27, 2011) for the reason described below.
To be eligible for Step 1 you must have completed at least two years of medical school by
the beginning of the eligibility period you selected. This eligibility requirement means that
students must have completed the basic medical science component of the medical school
curriculum. You must also be officially enrolled in medical school at the time you apply for
and at the time you take the exam.
You are not currently eligible for Step 1 or the information in your application was insufficient
to determine eligibility.
To be registered for Step 1 , you must reapply by submitting a new online application completed in
its entirety.
Please be sure to use the USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number listed at the top of this letter on
your new application and any future correspondence with ECFMG.
You may review the current ECFMG Information Booklet and USMLE Bulletin of Information from
the ECFMG website at www.ecfmg.org.
Should you require further assistance, please contact ECFMG Applicant Information Services at
info@ecfmg.org or call (215) 386-5900.
Sincerely,
Registration and Credentials Services

Default hi

You will not have to pay any money.

If your application was rejected and you are not sure why please call ecfmg and clear your doubts.

The money you have paid will be reflected in your financial statement in OASIS.

Have you completed all the basic science subjects?
If yes, please send the appropriate documents to ecfmg showing the same.
If not, then I'm afraid you are not eligible.

You will not have to pay any money. Once you reach the end of your application, there will be a message saying that pay or use the money already in your financial account. Please choose second option.
