    to the guy who asked, the number of digits keeps future averages from getting off by rounding repeatedly

    The lower that ACT score goes, the better I feel...heehee :P
  • drummerdude_07drummerdude_07 Registered User Posts: 1,345 Senior Member
    The ACT is lower than the SAT (30.6 is about a 1360 SAT). Any hypothesis?
  • tanonevtanonev Registered User Posts: 723 Member
    My hypothesis: people tend to want to take the SAT if they're pretty certain they'll get a high score, and take the ACT if they're not so certain...
    My support: Bragging about an SAT 1600 brings a lot more recognition than ACT 36

    The SAT is more designed to test potential; to measure intelligence in linguistics and mathmatics. The ACT is designed to test aquired knowledge in multiple categories.
