Eagle mbs

I am trying to help one of my scouts stay on task with his merit badge. He only needs a two more for Star. How many merit badges have time limits and what are they and the time. Thank you. Stay safe.

The only time limit is the Scout must complete everything before turning 18.

If you are asking about MBs that have a requirement that takes a specific amount of time, there is Personal Fitness, Personal Management, and Family Life.
