Can you pls explain the necessity of these 2 exams-sat and toefl.
I mean after taking the exam(majorly for international purposes),will you be granted scholarship just for writing the exam?

No you won't.
The time that governments gave out scholarships like that has long passed.
SAT is like our GCE sort of
TOEFL is just an exam that certifies you as proficient in the English language and non native speakers are mandated to take it to study (or work) in the US
that's about it.
You can now apply to a school and must show evidence of funding for tuition before you could even receive an I-20 needed for your visa application
There are still scholarships and grants available but most foreign students don't qualify.
One more thing,getting an I-20 from an institution does not guarantee you a visa.It only gives you the opportunity to apply for an student visa called F-1 visa.
Just like getting a letter of invitation doesn't guarantee you a visitor's visa
