SAT or ACT? Choosing the Right Test
Catering primarily to high school juniors and seniors, both the SAT and ACT measure students’ proficiency in various areas, such as problem solving and reading comprehension, skills you will need for success in college.
The SAT was redesigned in 2016, and the content and style of the SAT and the ACT are now very similar, but there are some noticeable differences that may cause you to choose one over the other, such as:
- Time per question. The SAT allows more time per question than the ACT, so a student who struggles to move through material quickly or worries about time constraints may do better with the SAT.
- Mathematics. The math section on the ACT has more geometry questions than the SAT. If you struggle with geometry, consider taking the SAT. Another difference is that the SAT has one no-calculator math section. If the idea of doing math without a calculator is daunting, you may be more comfortable with the ACT.
- Science. The ACT contains an entire section devoted to science. While the SAT does test science-based concepts, there is no separate section. If you dislike science, you would probably prefer the SAT. If you are a science whiz, the ACT may be a better fit.
- Reading. The ACT requires more reading but may be a better choice if you struggle with higher-level vocabulary. Overall, the SAT features more difficult reading passages and more vocabulary questions.
If you are undecided about which test is right for you, we recommend starting with Livius Prep’s SAT/ACT comparison test. We will provide you with our comprehensive diagnostic report to determine which test better fits your strengths and provides you the best opportunity to earn your highest score.
