The ACT and SAT tests are used by college admissions offices to determine your level of college readiness. Most college admissions committees will evaluate your application based on your best single-session score, so don't hesitate to send scores from multiple test days. For the most part, colleges do not prefer one over the other. However, it is best practice to check with your potential school.
