Question Will receive the degree after three months

I have just completed 1 year internship and am in the process of receiving my MBBS degree. But it will take atleast 3 months for me to get the degree so that i can send it to ecfmg.
Meanwhile ecfmg info booklet says that i should get a letter from my college saying that i have graduated and that i will receive my degree on so-and-so date.
But this means that ecfmg will have nothing to verify ( credentials = medical degree and later transcripts, if i am not mistaken )
Would this cause a prob with the registration process?
Will i not be allowed to give the exam until i send them the photocopy of my actual degree and they verify it?
Great post by the way!!! thanks for any help you can offer!!!!

The ECFMG will not ask you for Diploma or Transcript if they receive that letter from your medical school.
