Default Extending

Please help me. I dont know if the rules are different for students. This was mentioned on ecfmg when I opted to extend eligibility period.

"Original Eligibility Period: 01 Sep 2014 to 30 Nov 2014
Extended Eligibility Period Requested: 01 Sep 2014 to 28 Feb 2015
Deadline: 26 Dec 2014
Note: ECFMG must complete the processing of your request by this deadline or your request will be rejected. In order to process your request, ECFMG must receive both the on-line part and, if required, the Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) or Certification Statement (Form 183-E). If your medical school is required to verify your status through the ECFMG Medical School Web Portal (EMSWP) Status Verification program, ECFMG cannot complete the processing of your request until it receives this verification. As a result, the time needed to complete the processing of your request may be contingent upon your medical school's response to the EMSWP verification request."

So, according to ecfmg, it may require form 186 and medical school verification. anyone has done it before as a student and has any idea? I have nine weeks for my exam. I've been advised to take 6-8 weeks of bed rest by the doctor as I have disc herniation. So, travelling to my medical school (which is a day journey) and getting all the process done again is impossible. I'm not able to prepare properly due to pain and discomfort, and I'm not very confident of giving the exam in other 9 weeks. I must extend somehow without having to send the form 186 again. Please help me!

Default Please help

Hi guys,
I am an IMG. I applied for exam in March. Requested extension for eligibility period today and after completing the online part, a form 183-E Was generated. This is a form to be submitted by a student or graduate from a medical school that does not participate in EMSWP.
I didn't need this form while applying FOR The exam in March that indicates my school participates in EMSWP.
I am confused if I still have to get this form signed and send it to ECFMG?
Does anyone know how to proceed about it?
Would appreciate any help?
Thanks
