Recently sat your SAT and wondering how you would have done in the ACT in comparison? Or sat your ACT and wondering if the SAT might have been a better test for you? Comparing your results across the two tests can be a great way of determining which test will give you the best score possible.
The SAT (which used to stand for Scholastic Aptitude Test but now stands for literally nothing) is one of two college entry exams necessary for US college admissions.
US colleges and universities use the standardised American College Test (ACT) to assess your readiness for college-level work.
Start by taking practice tests in both the ACT and SAT. Then use our converter twice, entering each score to see the two different conversions. In this way, you may be able to gauge if you have a natural talent for one test over the other. (Eg: your SAT to ACT conversion might give you a higher ACT score than your actual ACT practice test).
The next step would be speaking to a Crimson Academic Advisor who can double down on your findings and confirm which is the best test for you.
