Form Form 186 Rejected Twice

I am a medical graduate from Rangpur Medical college, Bangladesh, but currently living in K.S.A. I submitted USMLE ,step-1, form# 186, through my college principal, but that was rejected. I was told that the current Principal's signature is not filed in their documents. In the mean time I came back to K.S.A. and again sent form#186 after getting signature and seal from Consulate General in Jeddah.

Unfortunately it was also rejected. But I could not understand the reason this time. It is not possible for me to visit my medical school right now, so I wish to submit the form from here (K.S.A.) through consulate general, Jeddah. What can I do now? Is it possible to get a specimen format of form#186, which was accepted and was sent after filled-up by Consulate General? So that, I would be able to understand my mistakes.

Arrow Call ECFMG and your medical school

There are two types of Form 186. One type have to be signed only by notary public (or consulate) and another type is to be signed by both a notary public and a medical school official.

It's likely that you are provided with the second type and so it has to be signed by both your authorized medical school official (usually the dean) as well as a notary public.

You have to contact the ECFMG by telephone and ask them why your form was rejected and they'll tell you why and they'll usually send you another Form 186 to rectify the problem.

You have to contact your medical school and ask them who's the person responsible for signing such documents (it must be the same person always).
