- Both exams are national college admissions exams that testsacademic proficiency in English, Mathematics, and Reading.

- The ACT has an additional Science section that tests student ability to understand scientific information in charts and graphs. This section does NOT test student's prior science knowledge.

- In 2010, the ACT surpassed the SAT in the number of test-takers, and that gap has only widened since (1,799,243 ACT takers in the class of 2013 compared to 1,660,047 SAT takers in the same year)

- Both exams are highly respected by all colleges that require an admissions test

- The test questions on the ACT are directly related to what students have learned in their high school courses in English, mathematics, reading, and science - no tricky wordplay.

- The SAT relies more on wordplay and primarily tests reading comprehension, however, you are given more time per question than on the ACT.

- There is no penalty for guessing on either exam
