The ACT is a curriculum based test consisting of four main parts: English, Math, Reading, and Science; and an optional Writing test. Individual scores are given for each part of the test on a scale of 1-36, plus a composite score (the average of the four scores).
Most students take the ACT in their junior and senior years.

The SAT test consists of Evidence-based Reading and Writing, and Math sections. Each section is scored separately on a scale of 1-800, with a composite score reflecting the total of the two section scores added together.
Most students take the SAT in the spring of junior year, and possibly again in the fall of senior year.

The pre-SAT (PSAT) is taken in October of the junior year.
The SAT also offers Subject Tests, which are one hour exams based on high school subject material. Subject Tests are offered in Math (Levels 1 and 2), History (U.S. and World), Sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), Literature, and a variety of foreign languages. Some universities require SAT Subject Tests. Refer to your specific schools’ admission testing requirements. Subject Tests also allow students to highlight their achievement in specific subject areas.
SAT Subject Tests are given on the same day as the SAT (except March), but you cannot take Subject Test(s) and the SAT on the same test date. Subject Tests are best taken after completing course work for that subject. For foreign languages, math and literature, it may be beneficial to take 2 or more years in those subject areas before taking each test.
