College Entrance Exams


Colleges will accept either the SAT or the ACT.  So,  what are the main differences between the two exams?  The ACT is considered an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned at school. The SAT is an aptitude test. The SAT tests reasoning and verbal abilities. Mayfield recommends that students take both the ACT and the SAT once in the Spring of their Junior year. Then, take whichever test you performed better on a second time in the Fall of your Senior year.
