In recent years, the ACT has actually surpassed the SAT in terms of the total number of test-takers. In the most recent year for which statistics are available, almost 1.9 million students chose the ACT, versus approximately 1.7 million for the SAT. Although the SAT is still more popular among applicants to the most selective universities in the United States, the gap is narrowing, and applicants will probably not suffer any disadvantage in the admissions process by opting for the ACT. This means that prospective university students should take whichever test most effectively showcases their academic strengths. Both tests evaluate essentially the same general academic skills, but they do so with distinct test exercises, test structure, and test timing. The best approach is therefore to try practice assessments for each exam, and make appropriate decisions based on performance and level of comfort (some students decide to take both tests). The ultimate goal is the highest possible test scores, whichever test is chosen.
