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.

Thank you!
