The Current SAT® at a Glance
Like the ACT, the current SAT is a nationally administered, standardized paper-and-pencil test that helps colleges evaluate candidates. The SAT is changing in March 2016; due to this the current SAT will only be offered in October, November, and December 2015, as well as in January 2016. If you will graduate in 2016, this test change will not affect you and you can plan to take the current SAT as normal.
All colleges now accept scores from the SAT and ACT interchangably. This means you'll have the opportunity to decide on which test you'll perform better. And in many cases, students prepare for and take both exams. Which is best for you - SAT or ACT? Take our quiz to find out.
