ACT vs. SAT: Which Test Should You Take?
Both the ACT and SAT are accepted by every college in America. There is no advantage to taking one test over the other, nor is one “easier” or “harder,” but taking the test that best fits their skills and abilities will help students earn the highest scores. For example:
Test Length: Both tests are similar in length. The overall testing time for the ACT is 2 hours and 55 minutes, with an extra 40 minutes for the optional Writing section. The overall testing time for the SAT is 3 hours, with an additional 50 minutes for the optional Essay.
Sections: The ACT and SAT contain similar sections. On the ACT, the sections are English, Math, Reading, and Science, and an optional Writing Test. On the SAT, the sections are Reading, Writing and Language, Math No Calculator, Math Calculator, and an optional Essay.
If a student is confident in his or her Math skills and can work fast without a calculator, the SAT test may be the better choice. If stronger in English and History/Social Studies (the focus of many ACT Reading passages), he or she may prefer the ACT.
Number of Questions: There are 215 questions on the ACT and 154 on the SAT. In every section, the SAT allots more time for answering each question. Because the ACT is faster paced, students who struggle with time management or are easily overwhelmed by pressure may have better success with the SAT.
For many students, getting into a top-choice college, and possibly even receiving a scholarship, begins with great test scores. The best way to accomplish this is by working with a private SAT or ACT tutor at Livius Prep in Newton, MA.
