SAT to ACT Conversion

Nowadays, preparing and assessing either the SAT or the ACT is not enough. To be on par with the cut-throat contest to determine the best, students are taking both of the tests to determine their abilities and evaluate their knowledge.

The ever-increasing competition to join the best colleges and universities seems to have no end. To overcome this competitiveness, students spread out their reach as much as possible and make the most of the opportunities that come their way.

 

Nowadays, preparing and assessing either the SAT or the ACT is not enough. To be on par with the cut-throat contest to determine the best, students are taking both of the tests to determine their abilities and evaluate their knowledge. It is not unusual to score higher in one of the tests due to the slight difference between the two. Both the tests evaluate students on different factors and one of them may be more suitable and more compatible with a student than the other.

 

The following chart contains the various comparisons of scores between the two tests, in case you took one of the tests and now want to evaluate your result in terms of the other:
