Default Permit to write exam after form 186

Hello,

I'm an IMG. I sent my form 186 along with the other documents to ecfmg last week and have opted for Oct-Dec 2017 interval for my step 1 exam. Will I get permission to write my step 1 exam right after my form 186 is received and approved and before the verifying credentials part of the process begins? Or will I have to wait until the entire process of verification is complete (which could be months because my medical school does not participate in online verification)?

Thanks.

Hi,

If it helps anyone, I thought I'd mention that I was able to obtain a scheduling permit right after my form 186 was approved by ecfmg. The credentials verification happened months later.

How many days does it take to get form 186 approved.

In my case, it got accepted about 11 days after they received the form.
