Question The 5 Years Limit of ECFMG

Hi,

I actually have a strange and basic question. Once u get the ECFMG ID no. you then fill the IWA form and send it to them. they will send to my college for confirmation. Then it will be approved after that I can apply....and now my question is the 5 year period in which I need to clear all the steps starts now or it starts when I send the application form.
if I want all the process to be done now and give exam next year is it fine???

Stop It's seven years not five years

It's not 5 years, it's 7 years.
Also, this period starts from the day you pass the first exam, it does not start from the date of your application approval.
