Default Question about Step 1 application

Hi guys, I'm new here and sorry in advance if this question has already been asked.

I am trying to register for my step 1 exam and have a question with regards to the application process as my case is unique.

So I was enrolled in a medical school in Europe and did 4 out of the 6 years (so finished basic sciences and did 1 year of clinical clerkship) but have now transferred to a Caribbean school. They gave me transfer credits for my basic science courses and accepted me into the clinical phase of the program (I need to repeat the clerkships I did previously).

Now I am trying to sign up to take the Step 1 exam before I start my clinicals in September. In the application form, I have already put in the courses for which I received transfer credit from my new school but now there is a section which asks to put in any clinical clerkship experience. Since I am repeating my clinicals, do I have to mention the ones I did in my previous school or can I skip that part? I don't want them to think I am trying to hide anything specially since the clerkships are mentioned in my previous med school transcript.

Sorry if this is confusing and hard to comprehend, I'm running on lots of coffee

Appreciate the help!
