Form Do we have to send form 186 everytime we register for an exam??!!

Hey everybody,

I just registered for the Step 1 exam and got form 186 signed by my med school principal. It was a total nightmare!! My med school is extremely inefficient and unhelpful to students so this simple procedure took many days. Will I have to go through this nightmare every time I register for an exam???

NO, once form 186 is accepted it remains valid for 5 years .
