While the ACT is the most common in our area of the country, the SAT through College Board is another college entrance exam. Unlike the ACT which has four subject area components (English, Math, Reading, Science), the SAT tests on math skills and language arts only. Some students find that they may do better on the SAT than the ACT. To learn more about the differences between the two tests click here.
