SAT to ACT Conversion

Many students are better at the SAT than they are at the ACT and vice-versa, so if you take both tests, you’ll need to perform an SAT to ACT conversion to determine which score to send to your colleges.

We’ve put together an SAT to ACT conversion chart to help you compare SAT and ACT scores. Because the range for SAT is much larger than ACT, we consolidated the SAT scores into ranges to better compare with the ACT scores.
