Registration Help regarding my CS application

Hello doctors,
I am giving step 1 in first week of nov. and then i am thinking to apply for CS for around feb.
So my question is I am a graduate from a chinese university and at present living in India. So If i want to register for CS when should i start my CS application procedure.
When i applied for my step 1. I downloaded my form 186 in india and got it notary from here and then sent to my chinese university and they sent to ECFMG. All this procedure took 20-30days. So Is CS application procedure is similar to this?

All suggestions will be really appreciated. Thanks

As long as you have valid form 186 (check it in your OASIS account) then you don't need to do it again.

Therefore, your CS application will take much less time.

Default ECFMG website

Thanks for replies friends,
Today i checked in ECFMG website. Nearly 40 days are available in jan and feb months for CS exams but for march only 5 days in first week of march.
So is that mean those dates are already taken my other candidates or ECFMG have CS scheduling like that only.
If my 186 form get verified before my step 1. I am thinking to apply for CS by first week of nov. but Is that possible that those limited dates will also be occupied by other candidates?

This is the link to CS calender for 2013.
Thanks..

I can't open this link. I don't think that all dates are already booked by now for March and later on. Maybe the dates after the first week of March are not available for booking yet? What do you think guys?

Default If not opening

If this link is not working then just go on www.ecfmg.org and under "Online services" option- select "step 2 CS calender and scheduling". Then log in with your ECFMG ID. You will get details about CS calendar.
