Question cancel the exam to take it on next extension period

Hello

As written above, I am about to cancel the exam to take it later on another extension period. Scheduled date is in 20 days.

Because it is not 'rescheduling' but first of all, cancel the exam, to reschedule it later but not sure when to take. --> so again, I have to cancel it first.
Can anyone tell me what would be the appropriate process to follow.

To help the understanding;
Scheduled date : June. 5
Extension period : June - August
New Schedule ? : September - November.


So What i understood so far is that I have to cancel the date though prometric center. right?
- Should I pay the fee because it is less 31 days left?
- Should I cancel it? shouldn't be a problem if I cancel the date (to reschedule later)?


That would be very helpful if anyone answer me.
Thanks!!

You have to get extend your eligibility period first on the ECFMG website, then cancel your original appointment with Prometric and reschedule your new appointment date.

The fee to extend your eligibility period is $65. If you cancel your date with prometric before 30 days it's free to reschedule.
