Date of Exchange and Effectiveness of JR PASS

I hold JR Exchange Order coupon, so could I exchange it with JR PASS on 11 May but for usage starting on 12 May (effective on 12 May 2016)?

Hi there,

A JR Pass has to be exchanged within 3 months after purchase, it does not really matter on what date that would be.
