Calendar Extended Eligibility Period

hey guys i have a question,

i have my test booked for end of june but i may want to change it to early july....my elig period ends june, but if i were to extend my elig period, but NOT cancel my current end of june date, would i still be able to take it on my current date.......the reason im asking is becuase i am still not sure whether i want to take it end of june or early july, BUT i heard the elig period extension takes a week or 2, therefore it would be easier if had the extension already done, and then afterwards i cud cancel my end of june date if i chicken out last minute....so basically, can i extend my elig period , but keep my current date at end of june?

As far as i know, you are legibile to extend your trimester 20 days "past" the final day of your actual trimester, but you have to cancel any appointment on the prometric center, if not it will be listed as you didnt take the exam and they will report as FAIL.

and to cancel any date, should be before 5 - 7 business day before the actual date you took... so if by today you are not sure, if i were you.. i move the trimester... or if those "number are giving you any score you desire go for it... " depends on how stressful you are...

Relax and think without the stressor... This exam by its own is stressful =)
