I did the SAT in one sitting and got 780 for Maths and 730 for Verbal.
It's quite high for me ^^, but I am afraid it would not be sufficient for HYSPM....
Of course the SATs isn't EVERYTHING but a 1560 would look better than a 1510 right?
I need all the advantages I can get, I am an intl student.^^

I wouldn't. The difference isn't all that much. I think once you are over 1500 they look at everything else. A 50 point increase isn't going to increase your chances at all at that level.

Then why do so many search for that elusive 1600...?

I know that schools categorize SAT's into different levels. If you have 1360-1600 its basically the same thing. So deciding factors are not going to be on SAT's if you are in that category, it will be on EC's, Essays, Etc.

whoa, why 1360? Isn't that a huge range?

Seriously, I had my MIT interview and the guy said that once you get past a certain point (approx 1450) it REALLY isn't that much of a difference. After that, they look towards the other parts of your app because you are officially "in the mix." Don't take my word for it, but I really don't think it would help that much. (Oh, and he said grades, AP scores, and SAT II's are all more important than the SAT I)

that sounds more reasonable...
