I recommend that applicants process these documents as early as possible, especially the Transcript of Records with scanned picture and Remarks "For Board Examination Purposes". Your school documents might take a while to claim from your School Registrar, and the pandemic or other circumstances might cause further delays. It never hurts to be ready.
