I took both the ACT and the SAT just to see which one I would do better in. I got a 35 on the ACT, with a 35 for both the math and science subsections. Even though online it says 1540 is equivalent to a 35, I only got a 750 in the math section. Which score would be viewed better by colleges if I want to go into a pre-med program?
Neither is better than the other. A 35 composite ACT score is equivalent to an SAT score range of 1530-1560 (1545 average) so you should just submit both scores and be done with it. Any reputable college with a strong pre-med program or a BS/MD will not be denying you admission based on your 35/1540 scores but rather a holistic review of everything you have accomplished during high school including your grades, course rigor, ECs, community service, recommendations, intellectual vitality, etc. Your 99% test scores just mean you have met the threshold for testing at top universities, they are not a singular criterion that will admit you or not.
