Mail Form 327-A resent to medical school

My 327-A has been resent to my medical school.
What could be the reason ?

I failed in a couple of papers and passed them after re-taking them 6 months later. Could this be the reason ?
Or could it be that some info was illegible or something like that ???

I am sure that all requisite papers were sent by the school ....

I am really confused ...

Could someone please help me out ???

It's most likely that there was some error in filling up your 327a form e.g. incomplete form.
I'd suggest go and speak to your college authorities if possible and check the completed form before sending it this time.

Do you have any idea/guesses about what could have gone wrong. The points that you mentioned hardly seem to be an issue as far as credential verification is concerned.

Thanks Sneha !!!

Maybe there was a defect in filling up the form, indeed !!!
I'll ask the college staff to check that out.

Will any additional documentation be needed to explain that I had to extend m course by 4 months due to failure. If so what sort of documents ? I could direct the college staff to place them along with the form.

I do not think any additional documents are required for that.

Retaking exams are a normal process.

327A requires additional documents only if you had anything UNUSUAL during your study period e.g. interruption or extension due to illness, family matter, phd, research, non research study, academic remediation etc.
Or if one had a probation against them etc.

I don't think retaking exams fall under academic remediation. One of my seniors had to retake one exam and his 327A got accepted right away without any additional documents AFAIK.

Good luck & keep us posted.

It seems that I had not sent a copy of my medical diploma (I clearly remember having sent it ?!?) and that the color of the seal does'nt match the color of the sample seal available with the ECFMG. (could be true because there is a minor color difference of the same seal available in the different offices in my med school)
