Dollar Sign fees to extend step 1

hello...my eligibility period is April-June,2011..i got the scheduling permit two days ago...i want to appear in June but there is no seat available in the prometric center (near my place) in June...so in case i dont get a seat in june i have to extend the period...so i just need to know the procedure to extend step1 and what is the fee for it?
Actually i applied as a graduate but didn't have my degree at that time...so i had sent a certificate from my medical school stating that i will get my degree in may...my question is do i have to get my degree verified in case i extend my eligibility period and what is the fees for extending.

No Nitish..

You do not have to send your degree right now... Send your degree along with form 345 to ECFMG from your college... It should not be a problem...

They charge 50$ for eligibility period extension... So extend it if you want to.. But, can't you go to another city to write ur exam? If that is not possible then extend it... The reason why there are hardly any spots available in prometric is because of the mad rush to take the GRE as GRE is getting revised...

Na... They have not... If you reschedule your exam then it depends on which region u come under... If u r in india then u need to pay different amount of money depending on how close to the exam u reschedule...
