The ACT or SAT
What is the difference between the ACT and SAT?
The ACT is an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school. The SAT is more of an aptitude test, testing reasoning and verbal abilities.
The ACT has up to 5 components: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science, and an optional Writing Test.
The SAT has only 3 components: Critical Reasoning, Mathematics, and a required Writing Test.
