Default Medical school graduation date confusion

I have some confusions about graduation date. I'm an Img from India and my school requires a compulsory internship in order to graduate.

I completed my internship on March 2013 and was provided with an internship completion certificate on April 2013.

My medical school diploma (degree certificate was issued in the year 2014 ......and the strange thing is, in my medical school degree certificate, it is just mentioned that I have been granted a MBBS degree in the year 2013....Thats it.
No other detail about date is mentioned. Not even the month I graduated).

So while filling up the online application of ecfmg I entered the following detail:

1) Attended from : 7/2007
Attended to: 3/2013

2) graduation date/diploma date: 4/2013 (The day I received my internship completion certificate, since no moth or date is mentioned in my degree certificate).

3) Internship: from 3/2012 to 3/2013.

Now, when my medical school was sending the documents to ecfmg for verification of my credentials, I saw that my medical school has mentioned my graduation date in form 327A as 23rd March 2013 (The day I completed my internship).

So, my question is, will this discrepancy in graduation date cause any problem??? Do I need to override the original step1 online application and submit new one ???

Or, shall I wait and see how ecmfg deals with this thing???

Thanks a lot ......... looking forward to all your valuable suggestions
