If you have the option between taking / submitting the SAT and the ACT, it’s important that you make the right choice! If you’ve taken practice SATs and ACTs and want to figure out which test you should focus on, or if you’ve taken both tests and want to figure out which scores to submit to schools, we’ve built a handy little tool that you can use for free! By comparing your scores and seeing which one is best, you can make the best possible studying and college application decisions, and we’ve tried to make that as simple as possible.

The tool works both ways. Just enter in your SAT or ACT scores and you’ll get shown the equivalent score of the other test – data based off direct releases from the College Board and the ACT themselves (Note: SAT scores may be +/- 20 points to equivalent ACT score)
