China Took step 1 on the 25th Aug and no score

Hey guys,

I took the test on the 25th of August (in China), and I have yet to receive my score. It's past the usual 3-4 week waiting period. So I'm just wondering whether I should start making some calls??

P.S. I'm still a med student.

Cheers

Default You have to wait

As per ECFMG rules, no applicant should contact them until he/she does not receive the score report within six weeks. As it has only been 4 weeks since your exam, you should further wait for a couple of weeks.

The condition of being a student or graduate does not have any effect on score reporting and/or the time needed to its availability.

I've read those threads, but I'm still clueless as to why it is delayed. Some people are saying that the results are withheld until ur credentials are certified, but I'm still a med student and I DON'T have any credentials to send in!
But then again, no one probably knows why the results are delayed except for the people @ ecfmg.

So I'm going to give it a few more weeks and if nothing shows up in my mailbox, let the calling begin!

Thanks everyone!

Is that part true? What if you were a graduate? Does that mean they are gonna stop your results till you are certified??

It's all speculations at this point since there isn't an official statement from ecfmg stating that you need to have your credentials verified before releasing the scores.

Just out of curiosity, what time does ECFMG release the scores usually? I hate to go through the process of getting worked up every Wednesday but only to be disappointed. HATE IT!

Just an update on my situation. I just got off the phone with ecfmg staff and the rep said that a certification of identification form was sent to my school to confirm that I was still a student when I took step 1 and they are waiting for my school to send it back to them so they can release my score, hence the delay. I hope this would shed some light for anyone who's in the same/similar situation.

Another thing which got me thinking. So the ecfmg knows about my score but it's just not on OASIS, and I've read about the OASIS trick a while back, which got me thinking: since my exam should have been scored (just not released on OASIS), yet when I tried to re-apply for step 1, it let me. So does that mean I failed step 1!?!? Anyone who knows anything about it pls help me out! thanks!!

Sorry guys I guess I'm freaking out. lol.

As you say - the OASIS trick doesn't work any more Just try to relax -though its easier for me to say than for you to do... It'll be okay. Try not to think of Wednesdays as anything special and maybe plan something else for that day so you can keep your mind occupied.

Good luck!

Yeah thanks for the comforting words guys, so the ecfmg needs to make sure that you're still a student both when you submit your application AND at the time of your exam. Therefore they send a verification form to my school to confirm my enrollment as a student at the time of my exam and they need to receive verification from my school so they can release my score. I hope that clears it up!
So now I've got to contact my school to see if they know anything about it.
Anyway thanks guys for all your support!! Will take it easy!!

Hey,

Test date: Aug 25th
'Actual' score report date: Oct 27th (supposed to be Sept 15)

So as you can see, my score got delayed by about 4 to 5 weeks.

In my case my eligibility period was JUN-AUG, so the ECFMG sent a letter to my school asking for verification of my student status on June 1st. However my school never sent the letter back. Hence the delay. I think you should wait for the usual 3-4 weeks after your test (that's the usual waiting time for most step 1 scores) and if you don't get it by then, I'd contact the school first (or the person at your school who is in charge of processing the ECFMG stuff) to see if the letter has been sent out.

Good luck!!

jerry

I think it was 3,4 days. But I had to call them. Sometimes they are a bit slow at processing/releasing the results. But I'd say about a week.

Hi,

At this point you just need to complete Form 183 (get it signed by the appropriate school official) and send it back to ECFMG, once they review the form and accepts it, you will be issued with the scheduling permit. Then you can schedule your step 1 test.

Good luck!!

The only problem for me will be the language IMO since I studied in Chinese medium at medical school.

So it's been 3 months now and you haven't received your score yet!?! That's too much waiting time. Today's my 3rd week after the exam, and there's nothing in my inbox.

Does somebody know what time they send the score report at?

GL to all!

Please guys i need your help
as per your situation i have applied to ecfmg and my form 183 has been accepted. But now what, will the ECFMG again verify your student status from your medical school at the time of declaration of results.
Nothing sort of that is written in the ECFMG BULLETIN.
This happened in your case.
Was it the case that you graduated at the time of declaration of results.

The other point which i have doubt is that in my oasis it writes that ECFMG will sent the scheduling permit to my mailing address.But in the email they wrote that they issue only electronic scheduling permits for step1,2ck which will be updated 6 month before my eligibility period.I am not sure what to do,could you recall what happened in your case

I may be sounding stupid but these stuffs are quiet confusing.

P.S. I am a student and my school does not participates in EMSWP

Hey there,

The ECFMG sends scheduling permits by EMAIL. You'll have to print it out and bring it on test day.

The ECFMG needs to verify that you'll still be a student at the time of your test and that you're telling the truth, so they will send a letter to your school and the registrar will need to sign and send it back! I didnt see it anywhere in the bulletin either. Just make sure you ask the registrar @ your school about the letter.

In my case I didn't know about this until I called ECFMG 5 weeks after my test, in which they told me they were still waiting for the letter.

please tell me what kind of verification did your college send , is it form183? my college did not receive any thing But ECFMG tell me they send request to it !
Do you advise me to send form 183 again?

I waited until a special paper called Re-verification Form (different from Form 183) arrived to my medical school. It arrived in April 28 2011 and got my score on May 12 2011. The mail service is extremely bad in my country.

Hi mac...thanks for the reply... Your date of result is a Thursday...So is it possible to get the result on other days too once our student status verification form is processed by ecfmg?? Or should we wait only for the Wednesdays...??
its been three months already and I am really sick of waiting...

Yes It's possible to get your score at any day If it is after 8 weeks of your exam date. The best thing you can do is going to the Dean's office and ask them if there is any new mail from ECFMG. contact ECFMG to know more. I did contact them hundred of times and went to the dean's office millions of times. Some of my friends in my country received their scores after 7 months of waiting.

hi mac,
thanks for your previous replies...I have done all the work and sent back the mail to ecfmg which reached there on 2nd jan according to UPS. But as of today they said they don't see that it was received...and that the result is not released yet. You said that you called ecfmg many times. How exactly did you approach them after you have sent the reverification form. I mean how did you ask and why is this huge delay in my reporting...Thank you.

That is great so you got the mail? I did all my work before getting the mail. I did not call them a lot after receiving the mail. After getting it you fill it by your Dean, send it and wait maybe 2 weeks to be released
