Form Filling Form 186

I ask about the name of the medical school official, should it be exactly as found in the ECFMG records?
I mean it must be the same spelling in the record in ECFMG?

Another questions, what color or pen I should use to fill the form? there is characteristic color (black or blue) or any other?

Yes, it must be the same medical school official that is in the ECFMG records. If there's a minor spelling difference in the name, I don't think that's going to be a huge problem, specially if your medical school is not in an English speaking country.

As to the color of the pen, it does not matter, choose black or blue, but don't write in other colors. It looks awkward if you use red or green

When you write the form, you have to print. This means you have to capitalize all the letters, for more details read here What does it mean PRINT in ECFMG Forms?
