B1 Visa B1/B2 Visa extension?


I need to visit US in July for USCE and want to come back after getting interviewed in January ie 7 month stay at a stretch but my visa is 6 month M entry.

Can I get 1 month extension of my visa if I show my interview calls in US? and if I can get extension, will it have a bad impact on my visa issuance for residency in future?
