SAT or ACT

hello! i have read through the UVA website and noticed that it says something about taking both the SAT and ACT. Then I see it saying to send in SAT or ACT scores. I just need clarification if I need to take one or both of them to get into UVA.

Sorry If it says it on the website, I may have missed it.

    Most colleges will take either, and will base admission on whichever score is higher - I assume UVa still does. Many people recommend taking both, because they are different.

    As of a few years ago, ACT was usually best for people who are good at science and SAT was best for people who are good at math. It may have changed.

    From the website:
    We require applicants to submit scores from the current version of the SAT or the ACT. The SAT Essay and ACT Writing sections are not required or used in our review. SAT Subject Tests are optional.
