Form How do I know which form 186 I need?

For the certificate of identification form - form do I know whether I should get it certified by my med school or the notary public..since I live relatively near my med school..should I just get it signed and stamped by them and then post it from there or should I get it though the notary public?

Arrow Apply and pay and you'll know which Form 186

When you apply for the examination online in the ECFMG website, they will present you with your Form 186.

There are two types of Form 186, one needs med school official signature only and the other needs both notary public and med school official signatures.

You will get to know which type you will get when you finish the online part and pay for the examination.
