How to send SAT scores to colleges: If you are applying to study in USA at the undergraduate level, most top universities expect you to give proof of your college readiness.

If you have registered for SAT online or have a College Board Account, you will receive your scores in that account. You will though need to sign into your online score report; an email telling you how to sign in would be sent to your account once the scores are ready.
It takes SAT anywhere between 4 and 5 weeks to dispatch SAT scores to your account and the colleges you have chosen to receive your scores. Also, colleges generally receive SAT scores a day in advance before you receive them.
If you do not have a College Board Account because you are registered by mail, in that case you will receive paper SAT score reports. You can even get the scores by calling the customer service, but you have to pay separate fee to avail this facility.
Alternately, if you have an online account but yet would like to receive paper score reports, you have to place a request for it at the time of registration.
You may also opt to receive SAT scores by phone the day the result is released. To get your score by phone, call Customer Service.
You will need your test registration number (printed on your Admission Ticket), your birth date, a credit card number and the expiration date of the card while requesting for this service.
There are two ways of sending SAT scores to universities:
Top universities around the world, including the US, UK or Australia, require that College Board directly send SAT scores to colleges. Consequently, copies of online score reports or score reports labels on transcripts are not accepted.
You can ask College Board to send SAT Scores either:
Before Test Day
After Test Day
Before Test Day: At the time of registration, you are provided options to send FREE SAT scores to FOUR colleges and scholarship programmes. You can opt for this option, which also happens to be the fastest if you want to create an early impression on the admissions panel about your intent and interest in the programme.
After Test Day: It may happen that when you appeared for the SAT test, you did not have any particular university or scholarship programme in mind; you simply wanted to test your English readiness. In such a scenario, you are unlikely to use your FREE options available at the time of SAT registration.
But, what if after you have appeared for the SAT test, you see an opportunity and want to apply for it. College Board allows you to send scores to FOUR colleges free of cost up to nine days after the SAT test date.
After nine days, you have to pay a fee to send SAT scores to colleges
If you want to send your SAT scores to colleges nine days after the test or to more than four colleges, you have to pay a fee.
Services and Fees to send SAT scores to colleges
Registration score reports
Four registration score reports available up to 9 days after test date
Additional score report request
Reports (over and above the four free options),
or score reports ordered outside of the above time period
Scores by phone
Scores by phone are sent at the same time as online scores.
(This includes sending scores to colleges)
If you want flexibility while sending SAT scores to colleges, you may use the Score Choice option. Using this option you have a say regarding the SAT scores you want to send to colleges.
You may send
SAT Scores to colleges by test date
SAT Scores by individual test for Subject tests
If you do not use the Score Choice, all your SAT scores will be sent to colleges that you have chosen. So, the final judgment of your scores will be made by the admissions committee as to which scores to ignore or pick.

Both the SAT and the MAT exams that you have taken are strictly percentile based.
Applicants appeared for the exams would have got more percentile that yours and that would be the reason for your rejection.
However you can take the exam in the next session and try scoring a percentile of more than 85 which may be a better chance to get qualified.
Best of luck.
The main and the biggest difference is that General SAT tests for the general Knowledge and critical reasoning while SAT subject test your knowledge in specific areas say: biology, math etc.
Also, General SAT is around 3 hours paper whereas, SAT subject is a 1 hour paper. General SAT is offered for around 7 times a year and SAT Subject is offered for like 6 times a year that too, depending on the subject (date wise).
There are two test for SAT Biology- Biology (E) and Biology (M), you cannot take both of them on the same date. (E) stands for Ecological and (M) for Molecular. The syllabus topics are as follows:
1. Cellular and Molecular Biology- 15%(E) and 27%(M)
2. Ecology - 23%(E) and 13%(M)
3. Genetics - 15%(E) and 20%(M)

Because the majority of students are selects here through jee not by their talents. Even if the pattern of jee is changed then also it is not similar as sat.
Hope it helps you.
