Are you planning to take both the SAT and ACT exams to bolster your college apps? If so, you’re in good company. More and more students are taking both the SAT and the ACT. In fact, the number of high schoolers taking standardized tests to get into college is at an all time high!
Until recently, the SAT was the more popular exam, but in the last year or so the ACT has begun to dominate the college prep scene. This is partially due to the fact that 12 US states now require, and pay for, public school students to take the ACT.
With this in mind, we created the Magoosh ACT Blog to provide you with information and resources about this test. 🙂
