SAT + Subjects vs. ACT?
Hi I recently visited Duke and found that they accepted either the SAT with 2 subjects or the ACT. I elected to take the SAT last year and am comfortable with my current score but never realized that the ACT could substitute for Subject tests. Why is this? I'd assume it's because the ACT covers Science as well but if this was the case I should've just taken the ACT instead of bothering with the SAT ANDDDD additional subject tests because they've been a pain to go thru and it'd be a lot easier to only have to worry about one test. Thanks for the help.2 replies
