Default Can I give Step 1 without medical school's permission?

Hello all! I'm an international medical student in the 4th year of my medical school. I finish my 4th year in a couple of months, however I want to appear in Step 1 before the end of 4th year. My school, however, is being an ass. The dean of student affairs says that since I haven't officially given the final exam of pathology, they cannot certify to the ECFMG that I'm done with my basic sciences. Is there any way around this? (I'm pretty sure there isn't but I just want to hear someone else say this )
