How many times can we retake the ACT or SAT in the United States?
Practically as many times as you want. Realistically, that’s about 7 to 10 times per year, for weekend SATs, so maybe 24 to 35 times between 9th grade and the first semester of 12th grade. It looks like there are up to 6 more “school day” administrations that the SAT offers, so you could add 21 more dates to the previous count, for a total of 45 and 56 dates.
I’m not at all sure you could actually take all the School Day SATs, or even just one of them (They’re generally for schools that pay for their students to have a special SAT session, and you have to have the school contact you). The ACT offers a similar program, but I don’t see if there are particular ACT “school days” or not.
The number of weekend ACTs is the same as the number of weekend SATs, so you can take the ACT about the same as the SAT. You’d have to be crazy to take those tests that many times. It would be a better use of your time to work hard in school, do volunteer work, etc. But hey, it’s your time and money.
