Which is better SAT or ACT ?
Submitted by yogita shewale on 18/10/2013 - 12:57 PM
Indian students who wish to study abroad have traditionally taken the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test), but over the last few years, as a result of awareness, more and more Indian students are taking the ACT (American College Test) as ACT is also widely accept across schools in the US.   While both these tests are accepted one must not assume that in format they are similar.  The fact is both these tests are very different and they are designed to measure varied skills. However, both of them fulfill the same role in the admission process.  Thus, depending on a student’s strengths and weaknesses, he or she may perform better in one test over the other.   Some argue that the SAT is better as the SAT features independent subsections, i.e. each section of the SAT is valid as an individual measure of critical reading, mathematics, writing skills which give a clear idea about a student’s specific abilities in specific areas.   SAT questions are pre-screened and are fair to all students regardless of gender, race, and ethnicity, country of origin or socio-economic status.   SAT provides more time for completion and therefore more time per question.  It is designed to test student’s knowledge and skills beyond what they have studied as this essentially means the student has a wider spectrum of knowledge which is essential to study in a university away from home.   However, there are people who believe that for ACT is an equally if not better test.  ACT for example, measures academic skills taught in school. This obviously means that performance in the test will be much better. - See more at: Click here
