SVA or Subject Verb Agreement is a very important concept in English grammar.  Many of the entrance exams (CAT, CLAT, GMAT, GRE, IELTS, TOEFL, BANK PO, NDA ) test students students on the rules based on subject verb agreement. Even after they are done, written aptitude tests / WAT (taken after you clear CAT by most top B-schools these days) will test your writing skills and mettle.

This blogpost will give you ALL that you need to know about English grammar rules for subject verb agreement and how to use them when the questions appear in your entrance exams.
