Your exam is valid for 7 years i.e. till 2022.
You need to send the certificate of verification again when you apply for your next USMLE exam. Might be a different form now since you have graduated.

Step2CK Score is valid for life time if you complete all usmle steps with in 7 years. Your step2CK results and Form 186 has NO relation at all.

Your 186 Form expires on July 2016, so you can take exams before July 2016. You can send new form in July 2016 from your college, so that it can be valid after that...

Call ecfmg if you have extra doubts....you can read ecfmg information booklet carefully to know scores validity.....there are many issues, we fear until we get them done.....don't feel anxious on small things:-)
