What are the SAT & ACT?
The SAT and ACT are both tests used for admissions to the undergraduate programs in USA and also some other countries. The exams are an important step towards your application.
The SAT (conducted by the College Board) is an offline (pen and paper) test while the ACT (conducted by American College Testing Inc.) is an online (computer based) test. However, the SAT is planning to go online as well and would change the test format – the earliest this would happen is 2023 or later. Both tests are offered multiple times in a year. Test takers have to write the test at a predefined center location.
