There is a lot of discussion and a lot of agony over the SAT/ACT decision. While each student has different strengths and weaknesses, I do believe it is possible to over analyze this decision. Most students’ scores are highly correlated.

Often, it comes down to preference. The content is very similar. The SAT is easier to finish within the time limit. If a student is barely finishing the SAT, the SAT is probably the better test. The ACT is more straightforward, but requires working at a brisker pace.

The good news is studying for either is studying for both.
