Default Applying for Step 1

My form 183 shows this:i'm applying for Nov(2012)-Dec-Jan(2013) slot, i am still a student in India. I will finish internship in April 2013. I have already made an online transfer of the exam fees.

Attendance Dates: Aug 2007 to Apr 2013
No. of Years Attended: 6 Years
Degree Expected: MBBS
Expected Grad Date: Sep 2013
Expected Degree Date: Sep 2013

Now, i am worried that i have entered 6years in the years attended; and i'm also not sure if my expected grad date is Sept 2013 (generally degree is awarded in September in my college).

DO you think i'll have to override application?

If i do override, please suggest what should be answers to the above fields.
Any advice please.

I have filled out Form 183 and put my graduation date as March 2013. However, my understanding is that these dates are provisional and dont matter. Once you graduate, you will have to send your official diploma to ECFMG to get certified. You degree will have your graduation date and that will matter for certification process.

Many students who come to US for clerkship electives end up delaying their graduation by 2-6 months. So you should be okay.
