Most colleges require applicants to take either the SAT or ACT. Some also require SAT Subject Tests. The SAT focuses on critical reading, mathematics, and writing. The ACT focuses on English, mathematics, reading, and science, with an optional writing test (the writing is mandatory for most colleges).
