Registration Transfer credit & different credits between 2 medical school

I've been transferred from one medical school to another & there is a different between the first medical school transcript & the second one transcript which made me the FINAL transcript,they wrote same credits at different years...
Does the ECFMG consider this as an irregular behavior from me?
or it's considered an issue between the ECFMG and my medical school?

Info There should be no problem

When you apply for a USMLE exam using ECFMG's IWA service you'll be asked specifically about transfer of credit.

You have to mention the number of credit hours that you had in each of the schools and you then have to provide documentation from both schools.

This commonly happens and by no mean is going to be considered irregular behavior.

You just have to be careful in writing exactly the number of hours in each school and you should maintain contact with both of your schools so that they don't mess up with your records and their communication with the ECFMG.
