If you take the ATI TEAS® 6 exam, and you don’t get the necessary score TWICE, some schools won’t let you try again, essentially forcing you to either:

  1. a) find a new degree program, or
  2. b) find a new school.

Most schools will require you to wait at least 30 days before being able to try again while others will make you wait anywhere from 2.5 months to 2+ years!
