When you register for your USMLE test in Nigeria, you’re required to enter your ID information. The details of your registration must match exactly with those on the ID you are bringing to the test place. If the details don’t match, you will not take the test, and your test fee will not be refunded.
Test takers in Nigeria will need an international passport as an identifying document upon their arrival at the test centre.
These documents are not acceptable as primary or supplemental ID under any condition:
Note: If your ID document isn’t written in English language and the test centre administrator can’t read it, you will most likely be unable to take the test, and your test fee won’t be refunded.
The USMLE Step 1 test spans 8-hours. 7 hours are assigned for question blocks, 45 minutes of break time, and an optional tutorial of 15 minutes; the check-in process takes 30 minutes. So, you should expect to spend 8 ½ hours and are encouraged to plan your test day appropriately. You should not fix any other serious engagement for the day.
When your online registration is completed, you’ll get a confirmation email with the test date, start time and test centre address. Please print the email confirmation for your registration. You will take the printed email confirmation and your unexpired international passport to the test centre.
You can confirm your registration status by login to your ecfmg account with your login details. If you don’t know your login details, simply ask for it from us or the agent that registered you for the exam.
Also, plan to check the status of your registration the day before your test to ensure that none of the registration details has changed (for instance, a different start time or venue than initially scheduled).
