The Importance of SAT Exam in Pakistan
Applying to colleges and meeting their requirement can be a tacky process especially in a country like Pakistan where each college has its own test to be catered to.
Any Pakistani student will understand that there are many different exams that have to be attempted in order to apply to different universities. These universities expect that the student comply to their set merit in order to qualify. Often, students find it difficult to manage giving all these tests which are only weeks and sometimes days apart. This makes the application process difficult. Moreover, it demands from students that they prepare separately for each test and often time this prevents students from applying holistically. But in order to overcome this problem SAT exam in Lahore provides an alternative route.
One common misconception that dwells in your mind and the mind of every other Pakistani student is that SAT is reserved for students who want to study abroad or get into Ivy League universities. In the light of recent events, it becomes necessary to rebuttal these misconceptions.
SAT is an exam that will not only secure admissions abroad but also in Pakistani universities. With the most prestigious institutes of Pakistan accepting it and exempting their candidates from an array of exams, it almost becomes a necessity for students in Pakistan (who wish to join the following universities and colleges) to take this exam.
Hence, if you plan to get into any of these prestigious colleges or universities of Pakistan you might need to check out the table below which outlines the desired sat score range so that you make it to these universities.

Apart from securing admission in these top colleges and universities, SAT allows the students to apply holistically in literal terms not just in Pakistan but also abroad. So if factors like financial constraint or social norm pull a student back from going abroad you can always apply in these colleges.
