Help Form 182 and Changing the name

hello everybody,
When i first registered with ECFMG, the name i supplied wasn't exactly the same as my passport.. "it was missing my grandfather's name, so the name on the oasis website is from 3 parts now, not 4 like my passport''
When i started the online application for step1 (this is my first exam) i was faced with a question regarding my name change, so i didn't finish the online application

So for the people who already passed through something like this or had to change their name later, what should i exactly do?

Print out the 182 form and fill it, then what?
Where/How to send it??

Thanks in advance

You have to also remember that your name should exactly match in the Final medical diploma an final medical school transcript.

After you fill up Form 182, fax it along with supporting documents (such as copy of passport) to this number

(215) 386-6327

Address it to

Attn: IWA/Biographic Change

Also for more examples and stories, click on the Name-Problem tag link at the bottom of this of this thread
