The ACT versus the SAT
The college readiness course that you take should be the one that will make your skills shine brighter! While the ACT and SAT serve the same purpose and are similarly accepted practically universally, the two tests are different in composition, content, and perspective.
The SAT has two parts – Language and Math. Each section is scored between 200-800, and the total score is cumulative. A perfect SAT score is 1600 points. The basis of the test is an evaluation of critical thinking and logic, so students who enjoy puzzles and problem solving are likely to perform well.
The ACT has four parts – Language, Reading, Science Reasoning, and Math (with an optional written portion). Each section has a maximum score of 36 with the overall score being the mean of each section’s results. This exam has more rigorous grammar and math questions and longer reading passages, but the questions are more knowledge and application based rather than evaluation and analysis.
Livius Prep begins each student’s preparation journey by helping make this choice. We offer a free Comparison Test that will identify the college readiness test that is better suited to the individual student, and the results will provide feedback regarding test taking strengths and weaknesses.
Prepare with Livius Prep
For more than thirty years, Livius Prep has worked with students to help them achieve their academic potential. Each student has an individual starting point, learning style, and goal, so we train our tutors to cater to these differences with targeted and individualized approaches. Livius Prep tutors hail from the most prestigious universities in the country and remain with us on a long term basis unlike other programs that rely on freelance based tutors.

This results analysis will inform any tutoring that follows in a targeted fashion.
