Should I Take The SAT Or ACT?

Last updated January 6, 2020

There's no way to know whether you perform better on the SAT or ACT without taking at least a practice test for both. We encourage you to try out both if you can, as each person is different (and you might surprise yourself!). That being said, there are some key differences that might make you want to consider taking one test over the other.

*As of December 2019, there have been some updates to the information in this infographic: 

  • ACT fees without the writing section is $52 and with the writing section it is $68
  • SAT fees without the essay section is $49.50 and with the essay section it is $64.50
