Dear Doctor:

The processing of your USMLE Step 2 application is complete. You have been registered for the April 1, 2011 - June 30, 2011 eligibility period in the Middle East testing region. ** Please see BELOW for details on the option to submit a request to have the exam results for this Step 2 withheld from your medical school**.

The eligibility period assigned to you for this exam may be different from the one you selected on your application for one of the following reasons:

- If you selected an eligibility period that has already begun and your application was not processed in time to assign the eligibility period you selected, you have been assigned the next eligibility period.

- USMLE policy states that you may not take the same Step more than four times in any 12-month period. If you have already taken this exam and the eligibility period you selected on your application does not comply with these requirements, you have been assigned to the first eligibility period that does meet these requirements.

The National Board of Medical Examiners(r) (NBME(r)) will issue your permit, which contains information on contacting Prometric to schedule a testing appointment. (If your assigned eligibility period begins more than six months from now, your permit will be issued approximately six months before the beginning of your assigned eligibility period.) Only electronic permits will be generated for Step 1/Step 2 CK; applicants will access their electronic permits using ECFMG's Interactive Web Application (IWA). You will not receive a paper permit by postal mail. In about one week you will receive another email from ECFMG to notify you that your permit is available. This message will include instructions for accessing the electronic permit using IWA. Although your permit will be issued by NBME, you should contact ECFMG by email at info@ecfmg.org or by phone or fax if you have questions or concerns about this document. You must print a copy of the electronic permit and bring it to the test center on your exam date. Your permit is a very important document, and you should be careful not to lose it. You cannot schedule your testing appointment or take the exam without it. If you lose your permit, you may print another one by using IWA. Your permit will be available on IWA until the last day of your eligibility period. However, ECFMG recommends that you print your permit as soon as it is available to you and keep it in a safe place. Upon accessing your permit, you should check that your name as it appears on the permit is spelled correctly. If the name on your permit is incorrect, you must contact ECFMG immediately. Name changes or corrections to your name must be received and processed by ECFMG no later than seven business days prior to your scheduled testing appointment.

If you cannot take a Step during your assigned three-month eligibility period, you may request an extension. There is a fee for this service. You may request an extension on-line using ECFMG's Interactive Web Application (IWA) or by submitting to ECFMG a completed Request to Extend a USMLE Step 1 / Step 2 CK Eligibility Period (Form 176). For information, access IWA or Form 176 on the ECFMG website.

For current information on test centers in your testing region, visit the Prometric website at www.prometric.com or contact Prometric. Sample test materials for all Steps and Step Components are available on the USMLE website at www.usmle.org

Please refer to the ECFMG Information Booklet and USMLE Bulletin of Information for detailed information on scheduling your testing appointment and taking the exam. Both publications are available on the ECFMG website.

You have to wait until your credentials verified before they send you the scheduling permit.

(Medical education credentials received and verification is pending).

Quote:
Your STEP 2 CK SCHEDULING PERMIT IS NOW AVAILABLE on the ECFMG Interactive Web Applications (IWA) website.

YOU MUST PRINT YOUR SCHEDULING PERMIT AND BRING IT WITH YOU TO THE TEST CENTER ON YOUR SCHEDULED DATE. You will not be able to take the test if you do not bring your Scheduling Permit to the test center. Note: You will NOT receive an orange Scheduling Permit for this exam in the mail.

To access your Scheduling Permit, go to IWA at https://iwa2.ecfmg.org, login, and select "Print/Reprint your USMLE Step 2 CK Scheduling Permit." Your permit will open in a new browser window. Use your browser's "Print" function to print the permit.

If you have any questions, contact ECFMG Applicant Information Services at info@ecfmg.org or call (215) 386-5900.

Sincerely,

ECFMG

Yes, this means they are not going to wait for your credentials to be verified. You can go and take the exam.

All you need to do now, is to go to Prometric website and set up a date (they will ask you for your CIN# which is mentioned in your scheduling permit).

Good luck

Default form 327

I'm in the same thing, i have my permission, and i have a date for my test, but my medical school didn't send the confirmation (form 327)... yet

What about that form??, what if the medical school doesn't send that form to the ECFMG?

Somebody told me that the ECFMG will keep the scores, until the medical school send the form back..., is that true??
