Mine said that too and they accepted it... So don't worry! I just checked again for you (I scanned the one that I sent in...) so I am sure they accepted it with it saying "Yes, I have printed this certification of identification form" at the bottom.

Please dont make your own margins etc with a pencil or whatever. LOL
Print it on A4 and keep margins to either minimum or customized.

Default form 186 help

Hey! After the dean signs the Form 186, I have to put it in an envelope and send it to the IWA address? What I do not know is if I write my own address on the envelope or the university's address? How do they know that it was sent directly from the medical school official's office?

It needs to be in an official school envelope with school logo, or in an envelope with a school seal attached to it. I dont think ECFMG will accept it if it comes in a blank envelope... But you can try
