Default Examination History and Applicant Number

Hi all:

I am applying CS registration now. But there is one thing to fill:

Have you ever submitted an application to the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) for a Part or Step examination?

I dont understand what it means, if i took step1 before and i bought NBME form before for step1, it means that i have to say YES??

thank you!

Are you AMG or IMG?
if you're IMG the answer is "No" because you apply to the Steps examinations through ECFMG, not through NBME

Default ECFMG said I can just leave it

Hi all:

Just now I called ECFMG and the agent said I can either leave it or cancel it and redo it again.

So can I just leave it?

Any opinions?

Because I am afraid of " irregular behavior."

It's not irregular behavior if you leave it, many IMGs (including me) make the same mistake, you can google it. If the person you talked to says you have the option to "leave it or cancel" it's ok. You're neither the first nor the last IMG making that tiny mistake.
