Are the marks of both SAT and TOEFL/IELTS required to take admission abroad in Bsc of physics? And if both are required then what should be their respective scores to get a cinfirm admission in an institue? What minimum marks are required to get admission in top institutes abroad?
For getting admission in Bachelors of Science (BS) Physics major, one need to follow the given steps:

- You also need to qualify TOEFL/IELTS as they are language proficiency test which clears that the candidate can understand the Foreign language
- Apply to particular colleges you wish
For SAT an ideal score to be eligible for US colleges would be more than 1570. And for TOEFL your score should lie between 90-100 for higher chances of selection. Rest depends upon your Profile and SOP.
Fir further doubts, ask us.
What is the score required in GRE and TOEFL for Masters in Data science in Carnegie Mellon university?
There is no definite cutoff score. There is no assurance of getting an admit from CMU even if a student has a perfect score of 340. The decision depends on a variety of factors. A GRE score above 325 would be a decent bet for CMU. However, the GRE score needs to be complemented by a balanced profile, strong letters of recommendation and a well-written SOP
A good CGPA, relevant research projects and publications, internships, previous academic records, and work experience also contributes greatly.
As far as TOEFL is concerned, even the bare minimum should be enough. It is only a proof of your knowledge in English.
Hope this helps!
