In June 2018, The College Board, ACT, and NCAA released an updated concordance between SAT and ACT scores. College admissions officers use the Concordance to compare SAT and ACT scores of different applicants. School counselors and families might use concordance tables in a number of ways:
- The concordance table allows students to compare scores from taking practice ACT and SAT tests to focus their test prep on one test or the other.
- A PSAT score is good indicator of a potential SAT score, so students can use their PSAT scores to compare with ACT scores.
- For students who have taken both the official SAT and ACT tests, the concordance table can be used to compare scores to determine which to send to colleges.
