Most US universities require admissions tests to assess students’ academic potential
The SAT and the ACT are the two standardized tests used by US universities to evaluate applications for undergraduate admission.
Both tests are multiple-choice and evaluate students’ logic and reasoning abilities by testing their core skills (grammar, reading, math, writing and data analysis). Getting the score you need on these tests requires preparation – and starting early is essential!

Good question! Choosing the right exam for you is the first – and perhaps most important – step in your preparation.
