What’s the Difference between the ACT essay and SAT essay?

QUESTION
What’s the Difference between the ACT essay and SAT essay?
Is it graded differently, is one more lenient.
Is it accumulated into a different score.
Do they grade on different criterias.
I’m planning on taking the ACT essay so I want to know if it’s different or similiar to the SAT essay.

ANSWER
I’m not sure I think the SAT essay expects alot more writing skills than the ACT test. I getting ready to retake the ACT and essay test and when I got my results back last year they said that I got a 16 out of 32 and all it said was this, “Your essay used some specific details, reasons, and examples, but it needed more of them. Your essay focused on the general topic rather than on the specific issue in the prompt.” So I guess it could be just as strict. Good LUCK!!!!!!!!! Maybe you should check the test websites they are very helpful
