Unhappy How can I change the Step 1 eligible period to an earlier one

Hi everyone!!

I started the ECFMG online application yesterday (I guess it is still under process) and haven't sent the Forms 186 and Form 187 to ECMFG. However, I did not realize I made a very dumb, terrible mistake regarding the Step 1 eligible period until after I completed the application and paid the fees.

I planned to give Step 1 around August 2014 but I chose the Step 1 eligible period of Oct-Nov-Dec 2014 by mistake since the internet connection in my country was not working very well and the browser did not show the information correctly.

So, I would like to know if it is possible to change the eligible period to earlier months of 2014 (eg.July-Aug-Sept) or not. And if it is possible, what do I need to do change it.

Thanks in advance and I hope someone could help me with this..

Good luck with the Steps, everyone!!

You cannot change it to an earlier date.

Try calling the ECFMG but I don't think they'll allow you.
