Registration Credentials Verification before applying?

Hi guys,

I'm an IMG looking to take the Step 1 in mid 2013. I'm leaving the country of my med school soon but seeing as the 2013 eligibility periods aren't yet available, I was wondering if I could send in my documents (transcript, diploma 344, 345 etc.) to ecfmg for primary source verification NOW, and complete the online application and form 186 at a later date (maybe Oct/Nov)?

Thanks a lot!!

No. You can't do that.

You have to apply for an exam first and then only you can verify credentials.
