Clock Time taken to accept eligibility period extension?


I have applied for eligibility extension a week ago. 2 days later i got an email stating that my request has been received and that i will receive another one once it is processed and accepted.
6 days from then i haven't got a single email from them. I am really worried. How long does it usually take to accept such requests? Is something wrong? Please HELP

I got a reply next day and then after 2 days i got a new schedule permit, then i contacted prometric on phone, paid the cancellation fee and mailed my confirmation payment no to ecfmg..after 2 business days i got my new permit and took a new date...Everything was done within 1 week.

to avoid paying money to prometrics if u set adate u should cansel the date b4 1 months so that not pay 50 dollar

so now extend ur eligibility if u r sure u will not able to take the exam within 30 november
the ecfmg will send u the new schedule permits within 2 weeks ok
and dont to forget to cancel the date in prometrics if set the date if u didnt set a date just extend ur eligibility now that will cost u 65 dollar from ecfmg only

Well , i am still waiting. I will give them some time till the end of the week. Hopefully by then it will be sent!

@yassirsattar : Just as miss patho said,

1st cancel your prometric appointment
apply for extension request
Pay 65 dollars
wait..wait..wait and hopefully they will send you the new scheduling permit to reschedule

Default I haven't scheduled my prometric yet

Hey, I haven't received my certification of identification yet but I remember picking an eligibility period while applying (therefore I obviously haven't scheduled an appointment with prometrics). I want to know if I can extend my eligibility period as I don't think I will be ready for the exam during the period that i have picked. What will be the best thing to do? Or will I get to pick my eligibility period again once i have received my certification of identification?
