What is the difference between the GRE and the SAT?

I'm thinking of applying to grad school in the future and I see that the GRE is a requirement. Is it similar to the SAT? Thanks! #graduate-school #testing

The main difference between the SAT and the GRE is the reason and time that you take them. The SAT is a standardized entrance exam for undergraduate studies which means you will take it while in high school and it will be considered when you are applying to colleges. On the other hand, the GRE is a standardized entrace exam for graduate studies so if you are looking at completing a Masters degree, you might sit for this exam.

The SAT is the standardized entrance exam that you take in high school for application to undergraduate colleges and universities where you will earn a Bachelor's Degree. The GRE is the standardized entrance exam that will be considered for entrance into graduate studies where you will earn a Master's Degree. However, there are other exams to keep in mind for different graduate degrees such as the GMAT - business school to earn MBA, LSAT - law school to earn Juris Doctorate and MCAT - medical to school to become an MD.
