Colleges and Universities require an entrance exam as part of the admissions process. Choosing whether you should take the ACT or the SAT depends on your college choice. The ACT is more subject based and focuses on material you learned in class. The SAT is more of an aptitude test and assesses your skills. All Universities and colleges within the state of Utah require the ACT.
