India Step 1 application for Indian Students

Posting this in step 2 forum cuz I want help from those who have already appeared for step 1. Those who have submitted Step 1 application in the past...please help me.

I am an IMG from India. Appeared for final MBBS in 2009. Result declared in Dec 2009.
Internship : 01 Jan 2010 - 31 Dec 2010

( Internship Completion Certificate issued on 06 Feb 2011 though Completed internship on 31 Dec 2010)


MBBS degree - issued In April 2011


Doubt no.1 - When you apply for step1, you are asked

"Date you completed requirements for the final medical diploma "

So is it Dec 2010 or Feb 2011??


Doubt no.2 - Graduation date is April 2011. Can anyone confirm this?


Doubt no.3

Number of years attended ---- It is 5 1/2 yrs but space provided isnt enough to write 5 1/2. Should I write " 5.5 "

I want to take step 1 by May 15 this year.So nervous filling up the application all alone by myself..Please help.

Got my doubts cleared from ECFMG and my medical school.


Doubt no.1 - When you apply for step1, you are asked

"Date you completed requirements for the final medical diploma "


ANSWER - In India, internship completion is compulsory in order to obtain MBBS degree. So it's the day you complete your internship in India.


Doubt no.2 - Graduation date is April 2011. Can anyone confirm this?

ANSWER - Date you received your MBBS Degree. It's the Date your degree/diploma was issued.


Doubt no.3

Number of years attended ---- It is 5 1/2 yrs but space provided isnt enough to write 5 1/2. Should I write " 5.5 "

ANSWER - Yes it is 5 1/2.

Hope it helps future applicants
