yah it is !

I think you would get 3 months time for writing your exam from the date of permission.Let you explain............you got your permit on 10th Aug then you have a time boundation of 10th Aug to 09 Oct.before if you are not sure then you can ask for extended period to write your exam,they would charge you some extra dollars,that you will get from ecfmg site very well...........................:):happy:

You can schedule your Prometric date any time during your eligibility period. You can even schedule 3 days before your intended date of examination. However, please be aware that you may not find available seats if you schedule with such a short notice.
I'd suggest it's best to schedule 6 weeks before the exam date.
