ACT and SAT

ACT (American College Test) and SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) are both entrance exams used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. Overall, the higher you score on the SAT and/or ACT, the more options for attending and paying for college will be available to you. They both have similar test techniques except that SAT doesn’t have a science test.
