Unfortunately there is not. You can only extend your three month- eligibilty period one time (for a fee), as long as your original eligibility period is still going on. It will be extended for three months and you will get a new scheduling permit.
I copied the appropriate section from the 2013 ECFMG info booklet for you here:


Eligibility Period Extension
If you are unable to take Step 1/Step 2 CK during the three-month eligibility period assigned to you, you may
request a
one-time extension. You may extend your eligibility period only through the next, contiguous eligibility
period (the next eligibility period that does not overlap with your original eligibility period).

Example:
An applicant’s original eligibility period is April-May-June 2013. The eligibility period may be
extended only through July-August-September 2013.

You may request an extension on-line using
IWA. If you take the exam during your original eligibility period or if
you do not take the exam, you will not receive a refund or credit of the eligibility period extension fee.
You may request an extension of your eligibility period only once for each exam registration. You may request an
extension of your eligibility period only
after your eligibility period has begun. The processing of your request must
be completed by the published deadline or your request will be rejected. For specific information on deadlines,
refer to
IWA. ECFMG cannot complete the processing of your request until your medical school verifies your
graduate/student status.
Additionally, you must continue to be eligible to take the exam during the extended eligibility period (you must still
be officially enrolled in a medical school located outside the United States and Canada that is listed in
IMED and
the “Graduation Years” for your medical school must be listed as “Current,” or you must be a graduate of such a
medical school and your graduation year must be included in the school’s
IMED listing). See Eligibility for
Examination
.
If your eligibility period is extended, NBME will issue a revised scheduling permit reflecting the extension. You
must access this revised scheduling permit using
IWA and bring it to the test center on the date of your exam.
If you have a scheduled appointment during your original eligibility period and need to cancel and reschedule the
appointment for your extended eligibility period, you must contact Prometric to cancel or reschedule that
appointment. Requesting an extension of your eligibility period does not cancel a scheduled appointment. A fee
may be charged if you change your appointment, depending upon how much notice you provide when making the
change. See
Rescheduling in Scheduling the Examination.
If you do not take the exam during your original or extended eligibility period or you are unable to extend your
original eligibility period, you must reapply, including payment of the appropriate fee(s), to take the exam.




So, as you can see, if you dont extend and then take the exam within those three months, you will have to apply again and pay for the whole exam again.
Hope this helps!
