Passport At port of entry

Hi there!

I got a 1 year B1/B2 multiple entry for my CS exam. Initially i had it in philadelphia in november but i had to cancel that because i was NOT prepared well. Now my exam is on Jan 26 in Chicago.
I mentioned port of entry in my visa application as Philadelphia. Will that be a problem since i will enter through Chicago now?

Another thing is that i have an observership from Feb in Chicago. I know that mentioning obsie at the airport is not a good idea as they say it cannot be done on B1 visa and you need a J1 visa. My obsie is for 3 months till april.

If i mention that i'm here for the CS exam only, would i still get a stay of 6 months at the airport (like is the 6 month period of stay "standard") or should i mention that i'm visiting friends, relatives, sight seeing etc...

Thanks for helping
