Registration Applying to Step 2 CK; Valid Form 186

If you have a valid form 186 from when you applied to Step 1 exam..How would you apply to the step 2 exam?
My credentials were sent 4 months ago and awaiting verification by the school (it's long I know), I have a form 186, After I apply to step 2 CK online, what else must I send/do?
Thanks all in advance..

I think you should sign and send in a new form 186 which has the eligibility period you've just chosen. That's what I did with form 183 (but I'm still a student).

Go to ECFMG.org. Log into IWA. You'll find "Reprint Certification Statement (Form 186) from your previously submitted Step 2 CK application (-----)" under Print/Reprint Documents.

Default Watch out man

If a graduate has a valid Form 186 on file, it will be valid for a period of 5 years. So you don't need another one to send them.

To start with ck application, go to IWA and enter ur password and id number. Then u will see options to begin a new application. Click that option for ck exam..... complete all the necessary information and pay the fee..... and that would be enough.....

U dont't need to send them anything else..... by doing all the above mentioned steps ... you will receive a permit within three weeks.... This was the way how I received the permit....

Good luck

May be graduates do not have to send form 186 again. Students have to send 183 every time they apply for a new exam.

Your best bet is to simply apply online, and you will know if you need to send in form 186 again or not. The on-screen instructions will tell you.
