Learn More About SAT TutoringACT or SAT: which test is more popular? Though the SAT continues to reign in popularity on the East and West coasts, the ACT is the more popular test in the Midwest.  That being said, recent years have seen both exams gaining ground in areas where they had formerly been less popular; it’s now common practice for students all across the country to take both exams. Since the differing formats and content of the exams tend to appeal to different students, many students take both tests to see which one suits their strengths better.

Though both the SAT and ACT tests are offered in all 50 states, the SAT-ACT preference map below shows which test is more popular among test-takers in each state.  The orange states have more SAT takers, and the blue states have more ACT takers.
