Question Applying as a student but graduating before taking the exam

I have taken my Step2CS and will be taking my Step1 shortly. I am thinking of applying now for my Step2 CK, which I plan to take in July. I'll be graduating in May. So, right now I'm still called a student, but while taking my exam Ill be a graduate [IMG]. I had these questions regarding the application process:
  1. In the IWA online application, Item 22 asks, "Status of Medical School Student-Are you now officially enrolled in medical school and, at the time you take the exam, will you either still be officially enrolled in or have graduated from medical school?" should I answer Yes or No to this query?
  2. Which form am I supposed to send now along with my application- 183 or 186?
  3. Will I be allowed to take my exam in July even if my Medical Education Credentials aren't verified by then?
I'd be grateful if my doubts are cleared. Thank you and all the best
