Hi dont you need to pay like 200$ for scheduling your exam 2 days before? or is it only true when you change your exam 5 days before your actual exam?

Im still trying to understand whats going on with the payments just for general knowledge, i have changed the date of my exam more then 1 month before but scheduled date, but the new date was 25 days from then. interestingly i didnt have to pay the 50$ , so i guess the 50$ is only if you change your date 30 days less then the first date, and the new date that you set can be practically anywhere. is that right?

@modesty:

idk if it apply for all.
am just telling u what i had to do.

initially i had a examslot from april-june
and i selected 27th of june

then decided to change and extend my elegibility

so 1st i had to cancel the prometric date

and then paid 50$ for the ecfmg to extend my exam
and then they told me i have to pay fee to the prometric too

so paid to prometric $50 more

so total 100

and only then ecfmg sends me the next exam slot
july-september

am now planing to do it end of july wtvr it is
