Thumbs Down if this is true, am going to die

hay everybody
Please answer my question if u have the info
I am a medical student (semi-final year) & preparing for step 1 & I was shocked 2 days ago that USMLE administration canceled the ability of med students to take exams! And only people with graduation certificate can sit for step1 ! Is that true?
If so , i have the US passport but am not studying in the US, does that apply to me??
Please give me any info u have cus i can't access their website from my phone & i don't have another web connection.

I also checked the site & there was no such an announcement but a guy at my med school was preparing too & told me that they requested for his graduation stuff to submit him to step 1 so i don't know , maybe we should call them cus this is really crazy to happen.

Default solution

i think the best solution is to call them , anybody can provide me with their center in Dubai (browsing usin a mobile is so slow & irritating lol) i can call them or just ask a friend to ask them in person. If that center doesn't provide such an info, give me any other contact number or email or whatever u guys can find.

*sleepy*

If i really believed that i wouldn't have double-checked cus i can't imaging the US people doing such a thing without previous announcement couple of years before excution. I was shocked when he told me that he actually went to sign up for step 1 & got that reply. That's why i want to make sure it is not a mistake that can cauuse all the students planning to do s1 in my school.

Well you can be quite relaxed that there isn't such an announcement, but rechecking can;t hurt I guess. I don't know of any number for a center in Dubai but you can email ECFMG at info@ecfmg.org
Hope this helps.
