The AAMC has testing limits on how many times you can take the MCAT exam. Voids and no-shows count toward your lifetime limits. Remember that you can only be registered for one seat at a time.
- Single testing year – The MCAT exam can be taken up to three times.
- Two consecutive-year period – The MCAT exam can be taken up to four times.
- Lifetime – The MCAT exam can be taken up to seven times in a lifetime.
We would not recommend taking the MCAT more than three times total. The fewer times you take the MCAT, the better.
