Default Graduation date

hello friends,
i have a question here.
i started my med school in january 2007.
appeared in my final exam in january 2012.
result published in may 2012.
i was issued my final diploma on may 2013 ( i could get it earlier if i applied for it earlier. my internship was from may 2012 to may 2013 which was required to get licence to practise but mbbs certificate could be obtained without it).
it is written on my certificate that i got my mbbs degree ON EXAMINATION HELD IN JANUARY 2012.
SO,
1) what is my graduation date? exam date (jauary 2012) or result date (may 2012) or certificate issue date (may 2013)?
2) date diploma issued? may 2013?
3) date completed requirements for final medical diploma? exam date ( jan 2012) or result date (may 2012) or internship completion date (may 2013)?

i am about to start the application process so trying to get things clear. any help is much appreciated. thanks in advance

I actually had some doubts regarding my graduation date as well, so I called ECFMG and they told me the graduation date is the date you receive your diploma, not your final results. If it says on your certificate you got your diploma in January 2012, then that's your graduation date.

thanks eizou. in that case examination date is the graduation date. cz there r two dates written in my diploma...1) obtained the degree of MBBS in the examination of JAN 2012 and 2) issue date MAY 2013.
in that case u r suggesting to write the first date, right?

Well the date you officially get your diploma is your graduation date. I got mine on 27th Feb 2013 but I got my results in December 2012, so my graduation date is 27th Feb 2013.
