What is the SAT?
The SAT is a standardized test taken by high school juniors and seniors that is used for college admissions in the United States and is accepted by every college in America. The test measure students’ achievements in Reading, Writing and Language, Math No Calculator, Math Calculator, and includes an optional Essay.
What is the ACT?
Like the SAT test, the ACT is accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the U.S., and more students nationally take the ACT than the SAT. The test measures students’ achievements in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science, with an optional section focused on Writing (Essay).
Should You Add the Essay or Writing Section to Your SAT or ACT Test?
When you register for the SAT or ACT, you will have to decide if you want to take the test with or without the Essay (SAT) or Writing (ACT) section.
These sections are technically optional, but some high-profile colleges, including Princeton, Stanford, California Institute of Technology, the University of Michigan, and the University of California system, require them. Other colleges use the Essay and Writing sections for things like scholarship consideration.
Since many students take the SAT or ACT long before they decide where to apply to college, taking the tests with the Essay/Writing section can keep you from shutting yourself out of potential opportunities. It may also give colleges a better idea of your potential for success at college-level work.
Taking the Essay or Writing section of the SAT or ACT will require some additional hours of preparation and practice, but it will prevent you from having to take the entire test all over again if just one college on your list requires it.
