<p>I have a friend who is international from China.. She is interested in coming to AMerica for college (most likely a fairly top ranked college).... Her english is pretty decent but she will take the TOEFL. However, she's confused on which test to take. Do US colleges have a preference on which test she takes, or should she just take whatever test she finds easier? Also, I notice that the SAT is 66% english while the ACT doesn't have as much English.</p>

<p>All colleges accept scores from both exams. Your friend should take whichever exam she is more comfortable with.</p>

<p>The SAT is 67% English, the ACT 60%. Not that big a difference in volume, but as you probably know the two exams have different foci. The ACT stresses grammar while the SAT puts an emphasis on vocab. I also felt time-pressured on the ACT which was not an issue on the SAT.</p>

<p>alright, thanks! :]</p>
