Question Extention of eligibility period before scheduling a Prometric Date

My eligibility period is from (MAY-JULY) since am not ready for exam, i would like to extend it to the next slot that is( AUG-OCT)
i have not booked a date at prometric, i have a valid form 186 on file with ecfmg and they have sent the credentials for verification to the medical school from were i graduated and have not received it back from medical school yet.

1) when is the deadline for me to extend to my eligibility period from MAY-JULY?
can i extend it few weeks before the expiry of my eligiblity period?

2) since ecfmg has not yet recieved verification of credentials from medical school, will it interfere in extending a new eligiblity period?

can someone help me as to how to go about it.
Thanks.

Your request for eligibility period extension must be approved before August 25th 2011.

It should not interfere. They sent you you initial scheduling permit before verifying your credentials and therefore they shouldn't have problem this time.
As long as you have a valid form 186 and you pay the fees for the extension you should have no problem.
