I took a practice test for SAT I and I got 1510 (750V, 760M) whereas on the real SAT I I got 1280 (620V, 660M) and then the next time 1300 (640V, 660M). Does anyone think that I will actually be able to pull off a 1510 when I retest in October? (BTW my test was timed)

Also, I just took the June SAT II and I got 600 in Math IIC, 620 in BioM, and 680 in Writing...

I know the SAT II scores are bad, but if I do well on my SAT II's and still get A's in the classes that I tested for in SAT II's (IB Biology, IB Math Studies, and IB English) will my colleges still consider me less of a good candidate (I guess a bad candidate) ??

I took 4 practices in the real sat book; got 1600, 1600, 1600, 1580, but only a 1480 on the actual test. I can blame that on believing that one section was the equating one and not trying as hard. I'm not going to bother to retake it again. I wouldn't worry until after you retest, try to figure out the differences between the actual examination and your practice one and work at mitigating that.
