SAT or ACT: Which is Right for Your Child?

The SATs and ACTs are both widely accepted testing methods to determine how prepared a student is for college. However, the two exams are not the same. The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is the oldest exam and is accepted by virtually all colleges in the United States. It consists of four sections – Evidence-Based Reading, Math (calculator), Math (no-calculator), and Writing and Language – whose scores add up to 1600 points. The national average is 1000.

In contrast, the American College Testing Program (ACT) measures a student’s ability to learn. It also consists of four sections, including Reading, Science, English, and Math. Each category is given a score, which is then averaged to create a composite score, ranging from 1-36. The national average is 21.

If you’re having difficulty determining which test would be best for your child, contact our skilled State College tutors. During an initial consultation, we can assess a student’s learning style and current knowledge. We then match them with an exam they are more likely to do better in. Of course, they can always take both tests. Whatever you decide, we’ll be there each step of the way to help!
