Advantage Testing LSAT Q&A

Which test is harder, the ACT or the SAT?

The ACT and SAT have many similarities—they both assess your college readiness by testing skills in Math, Reading, and Writing. Neither test is objectively “harder” than the other. Some students perform better on the ACT, others perform better on the SAT, and most students find their performance on either test to be about the same.

If you are deciding between preparing for the ACT or SAT, we recommend that you take both a timed, full-length practice ACT and a timed, full-length practice SAT. Compare your scores and your overall comfort level with each test. You should prepare for and take the test on which you feel that you will eventually perform your best.
