I had extended (still in the process) my eligibility to Jan-Feb-March after receiving my scheduling permit.
So need I wait for a new schedule permit? or should I go ahead and schedule at the prometrics?
for the process of applying for extension I used IWA. r there any document verification required again? I hope some one would promptly answer my questions. it would partially relieve my anxiety. rest of the anxiety wuld disappear after USMLE step 1.

thanks

Your should receive new scheduling permit

When you extend your eligibility period you should receive a new scheduling permit with new CIN and scheduling ID.
You can then use these new numbers at the Prometric website to choose a date in your new eligibility period.
When the new scheduling permit is available in your account the ECFMG will send you a notification email.

You don't need to re-verify your status or fill new forms for the purpose of extension unless your status changed from student to graduate.
