Unhappy I already Extended

Hello everyone,
I need help with this problem,
I registered for step 1 long time ago, the original eligibility period ended Nov, 2012, but I was busy in the residency and didn't prepare, so I extended the eligibility period till Feb, 2013... again I was busy and didn't prepare, I wanted to extend the eligibility period again but found out that it cannot be done!
what should I do?
should I try to cram everything in one month?
is there any other option?
any suggestions?!!

You can only extend your eligibility period once (which you have already done). If you don't give your exam within your new period, you will lose your money and you'll have to register again with new payment. Personally, I don't feel it's possible to cram the vast syllabus of the Step 1 in just a month, especially since you're also gonna be busy with your residency. But that is just my opinion....
