Question How do I cancel the exam?

Due to personal reasons i couldn't prepare properly for step 1 which is scheduled for the end of this december. I have already extended my eligibility period once. I am planning to cancel my exam, reapply and take it later when i am ready. I know i'll have to pay the entire fees again. I have few concerns.
Do i have to do the documentation and paper work again?
Do i have to cancel the appointment at prometric or can i just leave it as it is... if i need to cancel is there any cancellation fees?... Can i just miss the exam without informing anywhere/anybody or will it be considered as an attempt..
Please i need help.Thanks in advance. I would really appreciate if someone could kindly give me some clarity with these issues.

You don't have to send documents again to ECFMG. You have only to reapply again for your exam and pay the entire fee. No fees to prometric in your case. You can also avoid cancealing your appointment. ECFMG will send you another scheduling permit with which you'll reschedule your exam. It's simple. Good luck for your exam, keep studying hard and don't give up.

Check also the status of credential verification. It' s important, especially if you are still a student. This is because when you'll apply again for the exam ECFMG could send another 327 A form to your university and this could delay the process. Bye

Thank you so much for the help. Really appreciate it.
I am a graduate.Hopefully there wont be any paperwork to do.

So I don't actually need to do anything and just not attend the exam. No cancellation and don't have to inform anyone.
Just one last doubt. If i don't inform or cancel, wont it be considered as an attempt?

It means after our exam application is approved we cannot cancel and apply for refund?

I suggest to cancel your appointment, it's better...
it's not considered an attempt if you don't appear for the exam.
Read here
Cancelling the exam does not count as an attempt
No refund, you have to pay again.
