Hey there. The date of graduation/diploma etc is written on transcript you get from your med school. I started in 2011, Nov and my graduation/diploma date is July, 2017. If it isn't written there, you can ask your med school.
Hope that helps.

For question 4, it depends on whether your medical school is listed under their directory or not. If yes I dont think you would need to send in your diploma as ECFMG will liaise with your medical school. To apply step 2 once you became a graduate, you do need to send in form 345 but not form 186 as they would already have a copy of form 186 in the record. Better to apply both exams separately because as time goes you will find it no time to cope with two exams within the same periodicity.

hope it helps.
