Registration Medical school name error in ECFMG application

Hi, everyone. I was in the process of filling out my ECFMG application online and in the process i accidentally clicked on another medical school of my country listed in the IMED. I don't remember if the summary page of my application came up during the process. I came to know about it only after the form 186 generated. Now i am in a dilemma of how to change the medical school name. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

You will have to write to ECFMG from your registered e mail ID or Call or fax them this problem and ask them to correct. I suggest you call them and ask which is the fastest way because you cannot move ahead without the correct med school.
Their number is available on ECFMG Applicant Portal.
Good luck!

Hey thanks for your suggestion.
But I have already made the payment for the step 1 exam so I don't know if I should start the application process all over again??

you will have to call them and inform that it was a mistake just to avoid any problems later on. They may ask you to send them a fax with the undertaking and then they will cancel the application n put money into your account. But plz do call them before you do anything else.
