Did you know?

Both ACT and SAT have apps for test practice.

Students with disabilities can request accommodations.

The ACT is an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school. The SAT is an aptitude test, testing reasoning and verbal abilities.

Universities accept both ACT and SAT scores.

Eligible students can request a fee waiver for both exams.

You must submit a photo when registering for exams.

Some calculators are restricted. Make sure yours isn’t.

In spring 2016, the redesigned SAT will be offered.

Research shows that taking an exam a second time improves scores.

You should study a little each day. Preparation is a marathon, not a sprint.

The first standardized admissions test was created in 1901. Prior to that, students had to take an exam for each college they applied to.

Students can score substantially higher on either the SAT or ACT so it is recommended to take both. If this isn’t possible, the Princeton Review Assessment was created to determine which test you are likely to perform better on.
