It depends. Some universities ask their international students (those from countries where English is not the native language) to submit both their GRE and TOEFL scores; however there are some schools that only require you to sit for the GRE exam and are willing to waive the TOEFL requirement. But again we advise that each student correspond with the school and confirm these details before planning to take or not take the TOEFL.

The choice of exams depends on what field you are interested in and what kind level of education you’re looking forward to proceed with.

SAT is for under graduate studies; GRE is for Masters; GMAT is specifically meant for MBA and management related courses. However, TOEFL and IELTS are meant for students who have not educated in institutions that use English as the medium of instruction or students whose native language is not English.

Note that U.S. and Canadian universities prefer TOEFL scores while British, Australian or New Zealand universities insist on the IELTS.

If you want to take the SAT test, better take it in the 11th grade.

But make sure you are ready for the test. Being prepared is the important criterion for deciding the test date.

Generally, universities consider the higher score. Some universities even consider taking the average of both the marks. Though schools get to see your exam score history, a low score on record doesn’t always hinder your admission.
