yes you have to register for step3 before and 31 august 2012 and your certificate of identity should reach them before 7 sep 2012 for 2012 cycle.
hope this helps

So in case we miss 2012 cycle deadline, 2013 cycle registration starts in October and we can take test from November right ?

ok thanks .. in all likelihood I will know that soon

Per my other thread, I may miss August deadline but hopefully my theory about 2013 cycle is true and I am able to take exam in November before my CK knowledge becomes history

you DONT have to wait till Jan 2013

Thought FSMB says they wont accept applications for Sept, their system is open now (thanks for starting 2013 cycle sooner) and yes I am eligible to take exam from Nov 1, 2012.

cheers !

Hi, i got all my scores back only this Wednesday that is sept 26th, i guess i have been ecfmg certified though i havent received my physical certificate but a notice from fedex saying that your "creds" have been mailed by ecfmg.
Can i apply for step 3 now ?

All i m confirming is , am i sure that i'm ecfmg certified so that i can complete the online part of step 3 and register for Connecticut?

Because.. it says on the website that if you don't fulfill requirements, they'll not refund fees !

make sure your OASIS gives you exact date you were certified. You will need it in your step3 FSMB application form. even better Wait couple of more days .. you will actually get your cert

oasis has no dates yet.
Thanks for the reply.
So i guess i will be unable to complete the online process without that "date" ??
But since today i am free i can go ahead and get my identity form notarized right ??
and we can get it notarized in , say, india?
and we leave "SSN" blank right ?

Sorry for too many questions...

yes you can do ID form .. I would say just wait one more day .. once you fill online step3 form .. you get a nicely filled ID form which you can just print and get it notarized .. start preparing for Step3 and calm your nerves

it takes 15 minutes to fill online application .. and I don't think it means anything to send ID form beforehand ..

Its generated as result of your online application ..
