1 block = 3 months
you can only extend you exam 1 time.
Total time to take exam with extension is 6 months.

You can reschedule as many times as you want in your block period. However, you can only extend your eligibility for writing the exam one block. since you extended your block you are now locked into the next block, but inside of that you can take the exam whenever you want or reschedule as many times as you want..

You only pay reschedule fee if you reschedule within 1-2 weeks.

clear as mud?
