Should I take the SAT even if universities are test-optional?

I dont know if I need to take the SATs.

Many universities in the US went test-optional or test-blind due to the Covid pandemic. However, we still recommend taking the SAT especially if you are studying an international curriculum. A good SAT score can help set your application apart from others. US News recently revealed the 31 universities with the highest combined average SAT reading and math scores for fall 2021 entrants. While the average SAT score for the class of 2021 was 1060, per the College Board, applicants admitted to schools on this list earned much higher marks. The average score for these 31 universities was 1494.
