Default IMG FINAL YEAR FORM 186 and photos??

Hi everyone,

I am currently in my final year of medical school. I have done the online application for Step 1, now I need to send the paperwork. I haven't done any previous steps or submitted a previous application. This is what I understand:

1) I need to send off Form 186. (Form 187, 344, 345 should be sent off as soon as I graduate and receive my diploma)

2) While I haven't heard it mentioned on this site, other sites mention students need to send Form 186 PLUS 2 passport sized photos. Is this correct? If so, we basically send 3 passport photos of ourself, considering 1 is attached to Form 186. Do we write our ECFMG identification number on the back of the 2 free floating passport photos?

Is there anything else I need to send, or anything I have missed out?

Thank you for your help and time
