If you plan to start the course during the fall, you should finish the test at least a semester beforehand; many institutions need learners in this circumstance to have completed the exam by the conclusion of the spring semester or even earlier. Taking too much time to register for the TEAS exam may delay you past the deadline and bar you from enrolling in a course and force you to defer the exam until the following semester. It is advisable to register for the test at least two months beforehand for any test due date to avoid this uncalled-for stress.
