It is always best to reconfirm your date with the test center (I did a month before than 2 weeks before).

To extend you will need to reapply again (this time you will not need to do the whole thing with have the papers signed by the school and so forth). My school required that students acknowledged the extend so they know you understand in addition to reapplying for another eligibility period. But you will have to pay for it if you extend it 30 days before your original exam date.
