1. It takes some time, ECFMG does a lot of verifications first, I suggest you that contact your medical school in order to get everything done as fast as possible, because if your medical school made a mistake in the filling of those documents you have to wait more time.

2. I did not understand the part of 35%. However I suggest that you try to focus in the topics you have some difficult, I am sure you know what topics they are. Do a lot of questions, review them, not only the answer but the TOPIC related to the question, for instance: MI, so you have to do a quick review of MI to recall what you have learned before. It takes time in the beginning but you will go faster every day. In the last days you should try to do a quick review of buzzwords and associations that you have FA, it also would help you.

Yes it is normal. Your med school sends them the documents and then they send it back for verification. It takes some time, but it is a separate process. Exam scheduling is different and you are eligible to sit in the exam before all your docs are verified, as it has already happened with you getting the eligibility slot.
But you should keep on checking with your med school and ensure that they don't delay anything.
thanks
