ACT vs SAT

Getting into a top US university requires good test scores. Let’s review the two major tests options available: Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Testing (ACT).

Scoring well on one of these tests means you don’t need to sit the other, a top ACT score is equivalent to a top SAT score, so which test should you choose?

  • One important difference is duration, SAT (3 hours) vs ACT (2 hours 55 minutes).
  • The ACT allows the use of a calculator for the math questions, SAT does not!
  • If you don’t like science then consider the SAT it doesn’t have a science section, ACT does!
  • Both tests have optional essays (with additional time)

Here’s the  SAT and ACT test scores for Yale :

Test score ranges (25th to 75th percentiles) for enrolled freshmen :

  • SAT-Verbal: 720-800
  • SAT-Math: 710-800
  • SAT-Writing: 710-790
  • ACT: 31-35  (source: YALE) 

Before making your decision on which test to use for your college application, consider using an online testing service that offers practice tests, Magoosh offers a range of tests at affordable prices. Goodluck!
