Question Is Verification of Educational Credentials Essential for Taking the Exam?

Hello Forum ..


I am an IMG and recently gave my Step 1.

ECFMG has my form 186 and I sent a copy of my final diploma and marksheets to them also sometime back when I applied for Step 1.

However, my university has not yet confirmed my educational credentials when ECFMG probably contacted them. (I got a letter from ECFMG saying my university has not yet responded. I did however get my scheduling permit for Step 1 and gave the exam)

I wanted to know that will it be essential for me to get my educational credentials verified in order to apply for Step 2 CK? I have already submitted the online part of application but have not yet received any confirmation email from ECFMG (probably due to their holidays).

Should I contact my university and ask them to verify the credentials or is it possible to appear in Step 2 CK without this verification??

Experts, please help me this "complicated" issue.

In my opinion, your credentials do not need to be verified in order to give an exam. This is what I've been reading throughout this forum.
