The Right College Readiness Exam for You

Colleges usually accept both the ACT and SAT, so students can choose the one that is most appropriate for their aptitudes.

The ACT exam is more knowledge-based while the SAT exam is a measurement of logic and critical thinking.

The ACT consists of four sections: English, Math, Reading, and Science Reasoning. Students can also choose to take a Writing Test. The ACT exam differs from the SAT by including:

  • Double the grammar questions
  • Longer reading texts
  • More difficult math
  • A Science measurement

If you are unsure which exam speaks to your abilities, take advantage of the ACT/SAT Comparison Test. We offer it for free, and the results can clearly direct you to the test that you will be more likely to conquer.
