How to use the remaining STEM-OPT period and delay H1B start from Oct 1st?

Hello Rajivji,

Quick question if you can help to sort out my query-

I am currently on F1 OPT expiring 31st May 2024. Is it possible for F1 OPT student to use their remaining stem opt period and delay the H1B start date - 1st Oct to another fiscal year or 2 years? Can the remaining STEM OPT period be used and then utilities this H1 period ( 2 years of STEM OPT + initial 3 years of H1B)?

I really appreciate any help you can provide.
