Question Form 186 accepted but usmle exam application rejected!

Hello all,
ECFMG accepted my certification of identification form but they rejected my USMLE exam application, they also sent me a message saying that they are unable to process my USMLE application because i didn't send them a photocopy of a diploma or graduation letter and they also said that "you have to reapply the online part in order to be registered for this exam" .
I would like to know what do they mean by reapplying ? should i do all the application procedure from the beginning ? and if I did reapply which documents i have to send to get my exam application accepted?

thanks for all those who might help.

Did you apply as student or as graduate?

If you are graduate, you must send copy of Diploma.

Go to your IWA account and see if you can re-apply to Step 1 exam again. Then at the end of your application, they'll ask you to send the requested documents.

The ECFMG understands one thing. If you are a graduate then you must send a copy of final medical diploma (or an equivalent certificate). If you are not a graduate then you must apply as student and in that case you don't need to send diploma.

I think that's why they rejected your application and asking you to apply again.

My personal advise, is to wait until you get the Diploam to avoid all confusions and hassles.

OK what are they supposed to mean by saying this?
"If you have graduated and met all requirements for your medical diploma but your medical
diploma has not yet been issued, you must submit instead a letter signed by your Medical
School Dean, Vice Dean or Registrar on letterhead. The letter must state the following:
This is to confirm that [applicant name] has graduated and
completed all requirements to receive the [degree title] degree
from [medical school/university name]. The degree will be
issued [month and year]." i did sent a letter from my medical school stating that i have graduated and the date i have been awarded my degree on a certain date , they don't accept that !!?
anyway thanks for help

Sorry All for being late I took my Exam last week , regarding my problem it was fixed by applying online for the second time after my first application has been rejected AND I sent a photo copy of my medical diploma , They did not accept the graduation letter i sent for them at the start of my application, so If any one of you have a photo copy of your medical diploma send it with the other documents they are asking for , you should know by about 3-4 weeks if they have received it check you oasis account.

Good luck

Hi, did you send a new form 186 to ecfmg, after filling a new online application ???
or, you did only the online application, and the old form 186 is still valid ??

Thanks
